What’s better than drinking wine outside in the summer? Drinking wine outside a winery, of course. By now, tourists have inevitably flocked to their favorite winery. But now is a great time to branch out. Instead of hearing about a new winery through the grapevine, I’ll lay out a winery from each Wisconsin Winery Association region. Wisconsin’s thumb is a tourist hub. Boasting wineries up and down the peninsula, Door County is in no short supply of great wine. THE CORK:Rosé only for May? No way!
Rosé every day; why not? We’re one month away from the beginning of summer. But like May, this month’s Cork column is going to be a primer for the warmer days ahead. It’s time to talk rosé. Last year, rosé was the runaway hit of the summer. For good reason — rosé is complex, refreshing and often overshadowed by whites and reds. But what the heck is it? THE CORK:Is Wisconsin the next Napa Valley?
It could be a catchy slogan for Wisconsin wine tourism if tourists keep flocking to local wineries. In 2015, there were nearly 1.8 million visits to wine tasting rooms in the state and almost $50 million in estimated direct spending for tourism, according to a recent study. We can raise a glass to that. The good news? Wine tourism in Wisconsin is growing, according to a Michigan State University Wine Tourism Research Group study for the Wisconsin Wine Association in 2015 and 2016.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
