But it’s more than just what Bemelmans Bar looks and sounds like which sets it apart. It’s the sense of history you can feel in this space. President John F. Kennedy owned a suite on the 34th floor of the building and often drank here. And after Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Jacqueline Kennedy and her children lived in The Carlyle for 10 months, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Hosting a great wine tasting party doesn't have to be complicated. To be honest, all you really need is good wine, great friends and everything else will take care of itself. But based on years of experience hosting or attending such tastings, I thought I'd offer a few suggestions, just in case anyone feels like having one themselves. And let me add that these suggestions apply to a wine tasting rather than a wine dinner, which is completely different and often much more labor intensive.
Wines made with Sangiovese grapes cover a wide range - from semi sweet to robust and bone dry. And since these wines taste great with food or on their own, it's no wonder they're so popular everywhere. Winemakers around the world produce a wide range of wines using Sangiovese grapes. But when it comes to Sangiovese wines, winemakers in Italy excel at making wines there using these lush, versatile grapes.
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".
