about

Aaron Ayscough

I'm a journalist based in Paris, focusing on wine and cuisine. My articles about wine and restaurants have been included in publications such as The Financial Times, The New York Times, and Fantastic Man. I began writing NOT DRINKING POISON IN PARIS in 2010 on my lunch breaks while working for a fashion company. The blog mainly covers wine and restaurants in France, with a slight emphasis on producers and purveyors of natural, organic, and biodynamic wines. 

Before moving to Paris in 2009, I worked as wine director at Nancy Silverton & Mario Batali's Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles. Later I was a sommelier at the two chefs' next collaboration, Osteria Mozza. I've since designed wine lists for clients in Los Angeles, Boston, and Paris. I'm presently working on a book about the wines of Beaujolais.
