If anyone in Chile was going to take the concept of the wine label as art to a higher level, a smart bet would have been on Alexander and Carrie Vik, the globe-trotting, art-collecting owners of Viña Vik. The couple joined the Chilean wine scene in 2006, when they planted 800 acres of vines in the Cachapoal Valley. But it wasn’t until 2013 that they decided to blend their longstanding affinity for fine art with their passion for wine.
In a country with the largest average winery size in the world, where several mammoth companies pump out millions of cases annually that account for the majority of total bottle production, a vital small-winery movement has taken root in Chile over the past 20 years. Dozens of boutique operations have concentrated on production sizes of about 10,000 cases per year or less since the latter half of the 1990s.
In less than a decade, Chile has assembled a lineup of world-class red wines with world-class prices to match. It has been just 15 years since Concha y Toro brought in a French winemaker to help it make its flagship wine, Don Melchor, a Cabernet Sauvignon with power, well-expressed terroir and a price tag of about $15, which was expensive back then.
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".
