Our ingredients are key

At CountryBred we believe that culture is food for the traveler’s soul. It nourishes by giving us a living perspective of the world around us. Like great food, experiential travel takes time, passion and local flavor to make something truly special. Each Encounter is meticulously designed to include the finest ingredients, from exceptional boutique accommodations, private chauffeured transportation and regionally authentic dining, to knowledgeable local experts and engaging cultural activities, all with the goal of bringing you the most enriching travel experience possible.


Our custom Encounters are private touring experiences centered on regional exploration, which highlight robust cultural elements, such as gastronomy, wine, art, design, history and artisan traditions. Each Encounter is personalized to be a distinct reflection of our travelers’ passions, which we bring to life through our unparalleled insider knowledge, local access and dedicated team.
