Family Strong; Community Proud


Cork & Bottle Wine and Spirits is a family-owned store started in June 2014 by James & Marion Kehrer.


Jim & Marion are very family-oriented and community minded.  They have been long time, active residents of Colonie, raising their four children in the South Colonie School District. 


Jim has a background in construction management.  A graduate from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - The Lally School of Management and Technology, Jim is currently a project manager for Casale Construction Services. He is responsible for the financial profitability of multiple projects.


Marion has a BFA in Dance Education with a minor in Psychology from Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.  She has 25 years of experience in choreography and dance instruction.  Her most recent career was as an RA & Activities Assistant at the Marjorie Doyle Rockwell Center for Dementia and Alzheimer's patients.


They opened this business to have something they could do together once their children were on their own.


Jim & Marion bring their rich and varied background to every aspect of Cork & Bottle Wine and Spirits, creating a sophisticated yet warm and welcoming environment.  Their store is stocked  with middle to top shelved spirits and wine from all over the globe.


Jim & Marion also believe in giving back.  Please visit the "Community" section of this site to learn what organizations they have assisted.
