Ebony Wine & Spirits is a black-owned wine and spirits company based in Charlotte, NC vented and bottled in California. Owned by Camillya Masunda and inspired by her Congolese roots, Ebony Wine & Spirits was created to celebrate the history and heritage of vast black cultures around the globe within all of the uniqueness that they embody and represent.
“It’s about the mindset of luxury that we deserve.” After falling in love with wine in her early twenties, brand owner Camillya Masunda noticed a lack of representation of people that looked like her in the world of wine. Whether the lack was in marketing or ownership, Masunda wanted to fill that gap. After immersing herself in wine education Masunda launched Ebony Wine & Spirits under her parent company Camilia Organics.
Ebony Wine & Spirits was birthed and grows from a place of love and true unity. The taste and profile tell a beautiful story with every sip on the pallet. Ebony Wines currently offers 4 flavor profiles: Riesling, Moscato, Red Fusion, and a Sparkling Brut Rosè with more on the way.
Ebony Wines is run by a family-based team, Masunda’s top employee is her serial-entrepreneur daughter Lanayah whom she considers her partner and inspiration. As a single, teen mother, Masunda views her progression in the wine industry as setting the steps of generational wealth for her daughter.
