Founded in the 1880s by the Hall family, Hallcrest Vineyards has been a local fixture for a long time. John Schumacher bought the property in 1987, and now has more than three decades of winemaking under his belt. His 2015 Chardonnay ($36) reflects the experience of a seasoned grape-grower—the wine first reveals a bouquet of Bartlett pears, honey, applesauce, and nectar, followed by a palate dominated by white pepper, minerals and figs.
Why not kick off 2018 with a great bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon? As the saying goes … life’s too short to drink bad wine. Burrell School’s 2013 Santa Cruz Mountains “Dean’s List” (about $30) is a hefty mouthful of estate-grown Cab that will impress even the pickiest of Cab drinkers. Burrell School’s proprietor and winemaker Dave Moulton goes all-out to make the best wine—and this one bursts with Bing cherries, anise, blackberries, and currants, finishing with a subtle hint of pepper.
Ringing in the new year is such a wonderful festive occasion that it deserves a splendid glass of bubbly. I stopped by Equinox Winery recently to select a special “sparkler” for New Year’s Eve and immediately fell in love with the 2014 Monterey Rosé ($45). It’s a beautiful sparkling wine that’s just waiting to bowl you over with its sassy bubbles and amazing flavors.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
