Born in Nova Scotia and raised in Montreal, Chantal Martineau writes about wine and spirits, food and culture. In addition to Wine & Spirits, her writing has appeared in Vogue, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Saveur, The Atlantic, The Financial Times and others. She is the author of How the Gringos Stole Tequila and co-author of Finding Mezcal. When she's not sipping or writing, she's roaming the woods, standing on her head or throwing pots (on a wheel, not in a rage). She lives in a small village in the Hudson Valley with her partner and two daughters.
