If you’re an oenophile with a love for imported wine, you’d be forgiven for not paying heed to Chile. Despite a long and respected winemaking history, with traditions as old as those of North America — by which I mean the agricultural enclaves of Spanish missionaries, established in the 17th century — the Chilean scene has always seemed a little derivative, a little second-tier. They make Cabernet, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. They make a bit of Pinot Noir.
You can’t really tell the story about Hi-Time Wine Cellars, California’s biggest, oldest, and arguably most eclectic wine and spirits store, without talking about the Logo:For most of its 60 years, this iconic Costa Mesa wine shop has been personified by Mr. Hi-Time. He is an odd sight—heavy-lidded, squiggle-lipped, cleft-chinned. On his head sits a baroque chef’s toque, and his face is festooned with clock hands, set, in perpetuity, at one o’clock.
Here it is, the height of summer, when the mercury flirts with the 90s and the 100s. It’s the time of year for wines that whine, wines so dry and high-pitched they seem almost mean — but none is better at quenching thirst on a hot day. Before we go further, let’s make one important point: Even the driest of wines aren’t altogether dry. They’ve simply got enough acidity to offset sweetness.
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".
