Lodi is approximately 370 miles from Ventura. Cantara’s winemaker Mike Brown grew up in Lodi, and his family still has a small ranch there. So when Mike and his wife, Chris, formed Cantara Cellars a decade ago, the easiest part of finding grapes, was from Lodi where they already grew chardonnay. In fact, all of Cantara’s fruit is from there. “Most people have never had an opportunity to taste ultra-premium Lodi wines,” Mike said.
As the restaurant critic for the local paper in Santa Barbara, then for an international website, my job was to review and rate the culinary scene, which I did for 10 years with nearly 1,000 reviews. So when George (aged 92) and Alice (aged 102) suggested I cook for them I thought it would be fun. But I learned that you can’t pull the tablecloth over anyone’s eyes, and that food resonates deep within our psyche even over the centuries.
Everyone comes to wine a little differently. For some it’s a magical wine shared with friends, for others it’s because they had an amazing experience in a wine country setting, and then there’s Kristen Shubert’s experience. Shubert, owner of VinTura Tasting Room and Wine Rack in downtown, grew up in Olathe, Kansas, just 30 minutes southwest of Kansas City, and was the manager on duty at a fine dining place when a guest ordered a $3,000 bottle of Lafite-Rothschild.
What's so creepy about @seanhannity (aside from his personality) is that even tho @GOP rules the roost and his boy-toy @realDonaldTrump sits in the White House, #Hannity is pathologically obsessed w the Clinton's. Dude, grow up & move on!
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".
