Jake Bilbro played hide and seek in his family’s winery when he was a kid. The fourth generation vintner said there wasn’t a particular moment in time when he decided to become a winemaker. He said wine actually spoke to him his entire childhood, growing up alongside barrels, tanks pumps and forklifts. Bilbro, now 40, is behind our wine-of-the week winner – the Limerick Lane, 2015 Russian River Valley, Sonoma County Syrah Grenache at $45.
With its harsh landscape, Calatayud would appear inhospitable to grapevines. But this hidden gem is considered one of the world’s ideal regions for growing garnacha grapes. These grapes groomed in Calatayud were crafted into our wine-of-the-week winner — Las Rocas, 2014 Garnacha, Spain at $14. This is a tasty wine that over-delivers. It has generous blackberry and dark cherry fruit, with notes of herbs and black pepper spice. It’s balanced and has nice length.
Ernest Hemingway said “Wine is the most civilized thing in the world.”The famous writer obviously forgot one important caveat: except during harvest. As the decidedly uncivilized harvest season unfolds in Sonoma and Napa counties over the next few weeks we’ll see the signs –– the media circus, the gawkers and the tourists –– all craving a glimpse of how wine is birthed. Their photos, of course, won’t capture the spectacle — the joy in the midst of the contractions.
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".
