First Book On The Series:

Including her larger-than-life band of friends, neighbors and family, the book documents her foraging for food at a “tribal dinner” on a friend’s ranch, tolerating her husband’s obsession for garage winemaking, traveling the back roads of west Sonoma County tasting regional cheeses, wine and olive oils, and celebrating the distinctly west county cast of characters with terroir under their nails, a wheel of Red Hawk in the fridge and a farm table set for 20.”
-Santa Rosa Press Democrat

Frances Rivetti has written an excellent book — Fog Valley Crush, that that can only be described as one of the best new books of the year out of the Golden State."

About the Author

Frances Rivetti is a fan of living and working off-the-beaten track in the friendly sort of hometown where she knows not just her neighbors by their first names, but most everyone else. Born and raised in a small English market town, the curious ex-pat British/American journalist has called the compact Victorian riverfront city of Petaluma, California, home since 1992. Having raised three American-born sons in the folds of this super-nurturing, community-minded Northern California farming community, her passionate approach to wholesome family life continues to inspire signature international lifestyle reporting in print and online. She lives at the foot of a hillside hobby vineyard with her husband, sons and an assortment of wine country critters.
