I loved Sonoma County even before I moved here in September 2001, 10 days before the tragedies of 9-11. Waking up to a different world from an old farmhouse in the middle of Dry Creek Valley, I felt grateful and safe.
A travel writer with assignments all over the world back then, it didn’t take long to decide that what I really wanted from then on was to write about my own backyard. I have one of the greatest jobs in the world in one of the greatest places in the world.
Still a travel writer at heart, I love sharing some favorites here with you, from where I like to eat, to our best cheeses, fall drives, cocktail hangouts and music venues. Come visit!
