Marani Brands Partners With Southern Wine & Spirits in Nevada

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 15, 2009) - Marani Brands, Inc. (OTCBB: MRIB) is pleased to announce that it has made a change of distributors in the state of Nevada to have its brands distributed by Southern Wine & Spirits, Inc.

Southern Wine & Spirits is the nation's largest distributor of wines and spirits with distribution in 28 states. Marani is currently represented by Southern Wine and Spirits in California, Nevada, and Pennsylvania.

"This change in distributors was an important milestone for our company. Nevada is a very difficult market to penetrate without the strength of a strong distributor. Distribution is the key to success in each market of expansion, and we believe that forging this new relationship with the strongest spirit distributor in the nation in Nevada will have a significant impact on Marani's penetration of the Nevada market. Joining forces with Southern Wine and Spirits in Nevada will provide us with the right partner and platform to expand in a vibrant market that caters to citizens from around the world who come to Las Vegas and other cities in Nevada to enjoy their leisure time," stated Margrit Eyraud, Marani's CEO.
