About Markell-Bani

Markell-Bani Founders

Markell-Bani is the brainchild of two lifelong friends and Cincinnati natives, Greg Markell Lawrence and Sean Bani Yisrael who endeavored to create a spirits brand that would serve the interests of an under represented African-American community. The result was bold, brilliant, and classy wines with a sweet, robust and flavorful taste that could be experienced and enjoyed by a novice wine drinker or connoisseur. Welcome to Markell-Bani Fine Wines & Sparkling Beverages.
