You may be well ahead of me and have already tasted through the entire range of newly released rosés. Pink fever starts earlier and earlier each year. The state of the weather doesn't even seem to matter. We hearty British Columbians will drink pink, and buckets of it, especially between April and October. There was a time when I could barely scrounge together enough rosés to merit an article, even in the height of summer.
Like many dads, mine taught me how to ride a bike and helped me with my math homework. He also introduced me to jazz music and James Bond films. Most significantly, though, he gave me my first sip of wine. Like any self-respecting nine-year-old I spat it out immediately and swore I'd never drink the stuff. Well, I'm eating, or more accurately, drinking my words now. Both of our palates have evolved since then. That wine he let me taste as a youngster was pretty basic bag-in-box booze.
Italy owes a lot to Pinot Grigio. It has turned wine drinkers onto the country’s whites in hoards. Curiously, this grape isn’t actually native to Italy; though it has been grown there for many, many years. And the clean, light, crisp style that defines Italian Pinot Grigio has captivated the thirsty masses. I think of Pinot Grigio as a polite and pleasant gatekeeper. If you’ve made it to the threshold, it’s time to venture all the way in.
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".
