So when Drink.Think veteran and James Beard award-winning wine writer Alice Feiring recommended Talia Baiocchi for June 15’s reading event, I knew she had to be good people.
Her bio tells only part of the story: wine writer living in NYC. Former editor of WineChap.com; current weekly wine columnist for Eater.com New York and National; regular contributor to the wine-lovin’ San Francisco Chronicle.
But a closer look at her writing reveals more, particularly the sassy, accessible tone Baiocchi puts on for her Eater column. A quick skim of interviews reveals another piece to the puzzle — I especially like this Daily Meal Q&A, in which she derides the common wine descriptor “jammy.”
“That’s sort of gross,” she scoffs. “I don’t want to eat my wine with a spoon.”
I’m looking forward to hearing what this up-and-comer has for us at Drink.Think. Be there on Wednesday, June 15 if you’d like to hear as well.
