About Tanika Mangum

Addicted to hugs, sharing smiles, avid travel and oh yes Wine! Tanika is the founder of Tanika Explores, where she is on a journey to attend a wine festival in every state. While on this journey, she noticed that very few black-owned or minority-owned wine was featured. She could have set out to explore these wines on her own, but she felt that the best wine experiences are shared experienced. Wine & Convos was born.

Tanika is dedicated to creating a memorable experience by exploring diverse wine and venues, educating and engaging attendees through wine tasting and relevant topic conversations about community.

Wine & Convos events are currently in the Greater Washington DC area, with plans to expand to other major cities.

“I didn’t feel like a stranger.”

I’m new to the city and this was my first social event. Tanika is so sweet! I didn’t feel like a stranger and this event quickly made me feel like I will enjoy my new city.
