Developing a lasting fondness for wine during a long trip to Europe, Nadia Fournier had the chance to meet Michel Phaneuf in 2006. Following a distinguished 30-year solo career as the writer of the Guide du vin, Michel Phaneuf had finally found a talented replacement.

Nadia Fournier has participated in the writing of the guide since 2007, at first working closely with her mentor and by herself since 2011. Every year, she travels the world looking for new tastes to present to Quebec wine aficionados.

Aside from writing the popular wine guide created in 1981, she is a well-known collaborator for L’actualité and Exquis magazines and can be frequently seen on the Libre-Service show on MaTV. She also is one of the main critics for the WineAlign website.
