What we're about

Love to travel in style? Have an Inquiring mind and discerning tastes? Want to learn all about making olive oil in Sicilia, Troglodyte dwellings in Basicalata and would love to explore new cultures near and far? Then join our group as we come together for incredible journeys to incredible destinations around the world.

The most memorable moments we share are the dinners at a table as we pass dishes around and enjoy a Chef's signature creations. Whether it is at a long table set in a cobblestone courtyard under the stars or in some of the most renowned restaurants in the world, it's a place where the evening comes alive with great food, great wine & even better company.

So if you are looking for new unpretentious friends to do that with then we'd love to have you! Join us as we venture further from home, on bespoke vacations designed for the inquiring mind, each carefully hand-crafted for an intimate group of 12-14 persons to indulge the senses of every traveler through the pleasures of food, wine, art, architecture & luxurious living.

Each Journey is expertly planned from start to finish and guided to bring out the best in the flavors, history, and culture at every destination.

I hope you'll join our table in D.C. and away from home!
