Foodie and the Beast – Oct. 9, 2022

Hosted by David and Nycci Nellis.

On today’s show:
• Bodegas Tempore Wines is an independent brand of four organic and vegan wines produced in Spain’s Aragón region. Alejandra Sarmiento of Bodegas Tempore joins us long-distance and Eric Platt, president of Artisans and Vines, the Bodegas distributor, is in studio to fill our cups with Bodegas Tempore Wine;.
• Has it been five years already? Yep – and so, the 5th Annual, DMV Black Restaurant Week starts November 6th, Dr. Erinn Tucker-Oluwole, the event’s cofounder, and Chef Jeffeary (Jeff) Miskiri is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Miskiri Hospitality Group, an inspiring collective of Black, family- and woman-owned products and restaurants in and around DC are here with all the details.

• Next is a story of starting small and making it big – very big. Dario Wolos is the founder of Tacombi, a food and beverage taqueria and consumer products that started as a make-shift food stand on a Mexican beach. Today, Tacombi has grown to 14 locations in New York, Miami and Washington D.C., and has 75 more planned out. Dario Wolos joins us later in the show.

A crisp, full-bodied rosè in a plastic bottle? What!? Born in the pandemic, NautiLife brings you a great potable in an unbreakable bottle. Annapolitans Marina Anglim and Tracy Seybert founded the company and, with help from the omnipresent—and possibly omniscient– Eric Platt of Artisans and Vine, they are taking off like a rocket.
