Hi! I'm Frances Rivetti, a Northern California-based British/American award winning author and lifestyle journalist.

Greetings from the Tastiest Little Place on Earth, the last best place in Northern California wine country! I hope you enjoy my simple go-to-guide to Southern Sonoma County culture — tasty food, books, bubbles, fermentations and brews, art, music, special events, my favorite people and places to visit and stay, not just locally, but around the world. If I love it, I share it.
