Lucia Palm is a certified sommelier who teaches wine education on social media in a fun and easy way.
Lucia first became interested in wine while attending the Culinary Institute of America in 2012 during a mandatory wine class. After graduating she decided to pursue a career in hospitality working in fine dining restaurants while continuing her wine studies. While working at a 3 Michelin starred restaurant in Napa, she took her introductory course through the court of masters with Thomas Keller only a few rows ahead!
A year later she moved to New York and became a certified sommelier while working at a 1 Michelin starred restaurant. After deciding she wanted to be her own boss, she started posting her recipes with the occasional wine pairings and started landing recipe developing jobs, along with features in the top online food magazines.
In November 2021, Lucia decided to use her wine expertise and started posting wine education videos on tik Tok and within 2 weeks had her first viral video at over 400,000 views. With consistent hard work, Lucia has amassed 108k followers on Tik Tok and 102k on instagram by making wine fun and approachable through wine recommendations. Lucia was recently named the Top 10 Social Media Accounts to follow by Wine Enthusiast, has been a guest on the Drinking on the Job podcast, and has worked with many prominent brands.
