The forecast for E. & J. Gallo is bubbly and bright as wine still proves to be one of the world’s most recession-proof businesses. Gallo’s latest milestones include the sale of 1 million cases of red wine to China, top honors for CEO Joe Gallo in January and expansion into Washington state, California’s Central Coast and numerous world markets.
JERRY LOHR visited me at The News sometime in the 1990s bearing large maps of California’s Monterey County to show where his vineyards were either planted or about to be. Today those vineyards, including more in Napa Valley, are all in place, some 5,000 acres, all certified sustainable and Jerry is a certified wine hero to fellow vintners and wine lovers around the world. The J. Lohr name on the bottle is a stamp of quality. And don’t worry — overpricing is not Lohr’s style.
LA CREMA has worked at getting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir right for close to 40 years. You could say it was an “artisan” winery before anybody ever applied that word to winemaking. La Crema was founded in 1979 and purchased by Jess Jackson in 1993, and remains one of Jackson Family Wines’ treasured properties. The grapes are all from prized cool-climate vineyards in California and Oregon. In January, New Zealand native Craig McAllister replaced Elizabeth Grant-Douglas as head winemaker.
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".
