Story
Tagline
I own the Farmhouse Inn, Restaurant and Spa and founded and own Lost + Found Winery. My husband, two children, dog, cats and chickens have my great grandparents ranch where we happily grow grapes, produce, honey and more.
Introduction
My brother Joe and I own the Farmhouse Inn, Restaurant and Spa, and founded and co-own with Farmhouse's Wine Director, Geoff Kruth, MS, Lost + Found Winery.  My husband, writer, Rod Smith, two children and I have my great grandparents ranch, in the Russian River Valley,  where we live and raise chickens and have vineyards, orchards, bees and gardens.  I love cooking, travel and creating interesting, inviting living spaces.  I'm continually updating and evolving our rooms and public spaces at Farmhouse and use my own home as my "laboratory" for new ideas, vignettes and plantings.
