For those of you who do not know who Michel Rolland is, it might be a good idea to get acquainted. He’s virtually a household name in the wine industry; there are likely few better known wine consultants than Michel Rolland. Best known for having consulted on the blending of some of Bordeaux’s finest vintages, Michel has traveled the world — to about 21 winemaking countries no less — to lend his expertise to Old and New World vineyards alike.
Few things instantly brighten up a day than drinking a glass of Rosé al fresco. Times that by 10 if it’s over 100 rosés varieties from more than 50 different vineyards representing the Old and New Worlds that are served under an open sky with The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island as backdrop while aboard a Hornblower Yacht. If the idea appeals then get on the annual La Nuit en Rosé cruise.
When you ask the Spanish how they view a dining experience they almost invariably speak of an unhurried day spent with family and friends sharing fine wines and a multi-course meal together in an intimate setting. Well, Rodolfo Bastida, winemaker at Ramon Bilbao, got it right today at his family-owned SoHo loft in New York City where he chose to host a Rioja reserva-centered wine tasting and lunch for a small party of food and wine writers.
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".
