Talia Baiocchi is a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based writer who specializes in wine, restaurants and culture.
After graduating from New York University with a degree in journalism and political science, she swore off the idea of law school and decamped for Italy. She worked the wine harvest in Piedmont in 2006 and traveled to every winemaking region she could before running out of cash. Upon her return, she landed a job at Italian Wine Merchants, a New York wine shop. During this time, she began writing Synesthesium, a blog about music, art and wine.
Talia is currently wine editor for Eater.com, where she covers everything from restaurant wine programs to the stuff rappers drink. She has written about wine for many print and digital publication. In 2011, Time Out Magazine called her one of New York’s “New Wine Prophets.”
