The inspiring Vanessa Tortolano and Alla Shapiro join me for a great talk about their Kombucha story, the supportive community in Madison and their adventures in business. They dish the details on how they make their brew and why they still love teaching others to make their own. Listen in!
They deliver a tart, refreshing booch that reminds me very much of my own and my family easily knocked off the growler and 16oz bottles (we made a second trip for more) over the Thanksgiving weekend, which is when we need our Kombucha benefits like digestive assistance the most. Thanks gals!
I have also come to admire these savvy business ladies for infusing their hearts, minds and personalities into their company, one that grew organically from their passions as herbalists and community builders. It seems they found perfect partners in each other, and you can hear in their back and forth patter how they compliment one another's strengths.
They've got a great event coming up on March 6 in Madison called "The First Annual Kombuch-OFF!!!" which promises to be a hootin', hollerin' good time including homebrew contests, talented cooks crafting fine Kombucha related dishes and much more. Plus, say it with me now, It's All For Charity! Woot!
