Lucia Palm is a certified sommelier and wine educator who runs her successful social media brand Lucialoveswine on both Instagram and TikTok, where she recommends quality wines on a budget in tandem with providing wine education to her over 170,000 followers.
Lucia first fell in love with wine while studying Culinary Arts at the Culinary Institute of America. She had no idea that the first day of her wine class would be the start to an incredible wine journey. She is most passionate about developing recipes and pairing them with wine. There is something magical that happens when a dish meets its perfect match in a wine.
After graduating culinary school, Lucia started working in fine dining restaurants across the country, learning as much as she could about wine. While working at the 1 Michelin starred restaurant The Nomad, she became certified through the Court of Masters. She continued working in restaurants a few years after and finally one day decided to pursue social media full time growing her brand.
Her hard efforts paid off when Lucia was named Wine Enthusiast Top 10 Social Media Accounts To Follow. In her spare time, she loves to try out new wine bars with her boyfriend, cook, and cuddle by the fireplace with their three cats.
