After seeing the same five mass-produced choices being offered for bottles of her favorite beverage, Marin-based Champagne-o-phile Sherri Corker launched her eponymous company Sherri’s Champagne. Corker decided it was both an opportunity and a duty to Champagne patrons like herself to offer a carefully curated collection of grower-produced bubbly from France. Sheri’s Champagne will deliver six unique bottles, twice a year, to your door. A portion of the proceeds benefit women and girls in STEM education through The Buck Institute’s Double X’s program. sherrischampagne.com
