I WAS WALKING through a wine shop recently when a wine in a blue bottle caught my eye. Had the winemaker—or, more likely, wine marketer—decided this disco-bright color was one that would draw buyers or did the contents require a colorful cover up? I spotted several other bottles of a similar hue—a few German Rieslings and a couple Moscatos—and wondered if I was seeing the start, the middle or the end of a trend.
When it comes to summer wine, most people think white or rosé, or just drink their regular red. WSJ wine columnist Lettie Teague reveals the perfect summer wine on Lunch Break with Tanya Rivero. Photo: GettyA GREAT WHITE-WINE region is frequently a great source of a good summer red.
WHAT’S THE BEST bottle for a languid summer day? What wine pairs well with picnics and pools and games of beach volleyball? I took the laziest route possible in coming up with answers, punting these questions to seven top wine professionals with impeccable taste. They responded with summery reds, whites and rosés produced in wine regions all over the world. I did not, however, shirk my wine-columnist duties altogether; I bought each one of their recommendations and tasted them with friends.
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".
