One of Positively Petaluma’s favorite blogs is Frances Rivetti‘s Southern Sonoma Country Life. She always has good news to share not only for #Petaluma but also our great Sonoma County. Yesterday she announced on her blog that she will be soon releasing her book “Fog Valley Crush”.

In her blog she states that her book is her “love-letter to this micro-region of farmers, food innovators, artists and dreamers in which I live and work.”  She also indicates that her book will be a celebration and a sharing of Petaluma and surrounding countryside, an extraordinary place that is the last secret-corner of wine country.  She credits her design team of Petalumans Elaine Silver (Petaluma Readers Theater), Nicky Ovitt and Lorna Johnson‘s as awesome, amazing and meticulous talents.

Here is her teaser video for the book that was shot by camera man Gilles O’Kane and produced by her son, Rocco Rivetti (Red 14 Films).

  1. I’ve been a subscriber of Frances Rivetti’s blog, Southern Sonoma Country Life for years! I depend upon it to keep me informed on all the delightful things going on in this beautiful part of the world.

    Frances has incredible connections and an insatiable curiosity to learn about and connect with all the people in our community who do unique things. Much of it centered around the pleasures of life…good friends…good community…good food…good drink…and good stewardship of the land and animals God has gifted us with.

    Can’t wait to get into her Kickstarter campaign to offer my support and buy an autographed book the moment it’s off the press! I know it’s going to be an enjoyable read…

    Thanks Positively Petaluma for spreading the word about the great works of Frances as well as her son Rocco’s. The Rivetti family have all done incredible things for our community and are very talented as well.

    1. Thank you Anastasia! We will be watching out for the crowdfunding opportunity and will update our site with that information as soon as we get it.
