Sip, smile and unwine-d...
Hey party babes, summer is for sipping! So, you’ve got your besties on the way, the Butter chilled, and the hot JaMs prepped…you’re already killin’ it. Time to take your summer bash to the NEXT level with a bit of party flair–the JaM Cellars way, of course.
Here are a few fun (and surprising) party tips and tricks to pull out next time you’re hosting the best wine party in town!
Sure, a cooler might keep your delish Butter bevvies cold a little longer, but if you’re trying to impress your guests with a few party moves, an everything-but-the-cooler cooler will do the trick. Plus, the sips won’t last long in that cooler, anyway, when it’s Butter you have on ice!
Some of our favorite non-cooler cooler ideas are:
A hollowed-out watermelon, filled to the brim with ice and our easy-to-love ButterCans.
A cleaned-out pumpkin; it perfectly holds a bottle of #Butter, and ButterCans. Make sure to keep plenty nearby and restock when you start running low.
Chill Wine Bottles *Quickly*
It’s happened to the best of us; you ran out of chilled Butter wine and now you’re trying to cool your reserves. But you can easily turn this tragedy into a party trick and have your guests sipping cold wine in no time! Here are a few ways to chill JaM Cellars wine quickly:
Make an ice bucket for your bottle, but with one extra special ingredient: salt! Salt helps bring down the freezing temperature of water, which will chill your #Butter faster.
Frozen grapes are not only a tasty treat, they're also a great way to chill wine quickly, without watering it down. Pop a couple in your glass and get back to partyin!
Wrap a damp paper towel around the bottle of wine, and sit it in the freezer. The damp towel will freeze quickly, and thanks to the frozen towel, the wine will chill in half the time it usually would! Less time preppin, more time sippin.
Saber Your Butter Bubbles
Sabering is a totally extra way of opening a bottle of bubbly, and who doesn’t want to look like a boss in front of their party guests?? Add a lil #SundayFunday flair next time you’re bustin’ out the brunch bubbles.
Here’s how to fancily pop the bubbly Butter Bubbles at your next party:
For all the deets, check out Food52 video here.
1. First, grab your saber of choice. If you don’t have a real saber (lol), a hearty kitchen knife or metal butter knife will do the (party) trick.
2. Put your bubbly in the freezer for about 10 mins. You want the bottle to be very cold.
3. Get al fresco with it. Butter be safe and head outside in the backyard for this one!
4. Remove the cage from the bottle and locate the seam that runs up the side of the bottle.
5. (With the bottle pointing away from you and everyone else in your crew–pups too!) In one long motion, run the back edge of your sturdy kitchen knife firmly and quickly up the seam of the bottle, and through the lip.
6. TIP: hold your “saber” at a slight angle rather than perpendicular.
YASSS! Now you’ve officially gotten your party off with the ultimate bang. OF COURSE, safety first, please try this party trick responsibly.
Wine Ice Cubes
Literally the last thing you want on a hot summer day is a warm beverage. Cool down your party guests with a fun party trick: JaM Cellars wine ice cubes! These fun and simple wine ice cubes will add life to your drink and cool you down when the party starts getting HAWT.
Here are some fun wine ice cube ideas for your next party:
Turn Up the Party JaMs
Never run out of JaM Cellars wine again with our fast and convenient wine delivery partners! Get stocked up today!
Summer is FINALLY here, and things are heating up! To help you babes chill down and enjoy every, single, icy-cold sip, we’ve rounded up 5 ways to chill with JaM Cellars. So, forget the dog days, grab some ice, and sip into the #ButterDays.
Plan a Beach Day
Summer beach days are the best days. The warm sun, the salty air, the chilled wines…what’s not to love?
But, don't feel like you're obligated to stick with the tradition of warm beer on the beach just because that’s what you’ll usually find in the sandy cooler. Next time you’re planning a beach day, be the star of the show and surprise your beach babes with a few cases of delicious, ice-cold ButterCans! With all the wine you can carry and all the JaM’s you’ll need via the “Summer Festival JaM’s” playlist on iHeartRadio, you’re going to be one heck of a chiller this summer.
Don’t have access to the beach? That’s okay…a girl can dream! Lay out your favorite beach towel, throw a few cases of ButterCans on ice, turn up your speakers and you’re ready to go–without even leaving your house! Bonus points if the sun is out!
Chill Out Poolside
Did you know that you can also plan a wine-by-the-pool day even if you don’t have a pool of your own? With apps like Swimply and Airbnb, finding a pool to sip beside for the day is almost as easy as opening a bottle of Butter!
Or, if you’re in the mood to stay local, you could call up one of your neighbors/friends to see if they’ll let you use their pool in exchange for a case of cold ButterCans. Pro tip: Make sure to bring plenty for yourself! Butter makes for the ultimate creami-licious poolside sip, so make sure to stock up on your fave JaM Cellars wine before you sink into your floatie for the day.
Brunch with the Besties
Another way to keep your chill game strong throughout the summer? Find a shady patio to post up and get brunching with your besties! No matter the season, brunch is an important constant in our lives (just like your ever faithful, always there for you, Butter wines). But thanks to sweet summertime, we have a few extra reasons to sip back and enjoy a lil’ boozy brunch with the gal pals more often.
Whether you're picnicking at a local park or taking advantage of your friend's rooftop patio, as long as you've got a healthy supply of bagels and a few bottles of Butter Bubbles (obvi), the world is your (brunch) oyster!
Check out these can’t-miss brunch and JaM Cellars wine pairings for your next gal pal get-together this summer.
Host a S’mores Night
Think back to the last time you had a homemade s’more. The crispy-sweet crunch of the graham cracker. The salty crumbs mingled with the sticky marshmallow...mmm mmm mmmmmmm. Really, the only thing that could make that experience better would be washing down your warm, gooey creation with a tall glass of lucious, berry-licious JaM Cab!
This summer, gather the girls and host a s’mores night like you’ve never had before. Say goodbye to the s’mores of your childhood, and take it a step further! From peanut butter cups to grilled bananas, there’s a delicious s’mores recipe for everyone. Here are some of the s’mores and JaM Cellars wine pairings were obsessing over:
Party on the Front Porch
Remember the Good Ol’ Days? The warm summer nights where all your closest neighbors somehow ended up on your porch, and everyone was laughing, drinking and hanging out? Recreate some of your favorite childhood memories by inviting your friends and neighbors over for a summer night porch hang/Butter bash.
Turn your porch into the ultimate place-to-be by hanging up some fun outdoor lights, setting up a large cooler for your fave lineup of JaM Cellars wines, and cranking up the tunes. Our “Summer Festival JaM’s” playlist on iHeartRadio is just the thing you’ll be looking for as the sun goes down and the party turns up.
You know what’s better…err I mean Butter than a #SundayFunday? A rocking #WineWednesday, of course!
And that’s exactly what we do with our virtual #JaMHappyHour shows LIVE on JaM Cellars Facebook and YouTube- hosted three times a month on #WineWednesday or #ThirstyThursday at 4:00pm PST. Plus a super special Sweet Relief benefit show the final Friday of the month!
Whether you’re looking to sip back and relax with chill tunes, or a fun conversation about music and wine, we’ve put together a countdown of our TOP 10 #JaMHappyHour artists so you can #WineDown JaM Cellars style. Grab a bubbly glass of #Butter and fire up the bluetooth–these artists are definitely going to put the HAPPY in your HOUR:
#1 Emily Kinney
And…coming in at number ONE–we have the triple threat of actress, singer, AND songwriter Emily Kinney! It’s pretty clear that this talented gal puts a lot of her own personal life into the songs that she writes, and we’re here for it!
During Emily’s #JaMHappyHour benefiting Sweet Relief, we broke out a bottle of creamy Butter Bubbles to match her delicate voice and bubbly personality. So tonight, chill out with your own glass of bubbles to celebrate #WineWednesday the JaM Cellars way.
#2 Ben Thornewill
Another fan fave here at JaM Cellars is the wine-derful, extremely talented Ben Thornewill. His goal is to combine his love for classical music with pop music, which delights listeners of all ages and musical tastes. During Ben’s #JaMHappyHour benefitting Sweet Relief, we were able to chat with him about his latest tours, newest album, and his recent release of ABBA covers (can you say Mama Mia??)!
Find Ben Thornewill’s Sweet Relief episode on YouTube, as well as his podcast episode on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. Don’t forget the Butter Cab (as seen in Ben’s glass while he plays!). Snag yours here.
#3 Lisa Loeb
To know Lisa Loeb is to love her! Making the TOP 3 of course! During her Sweet Relief #JaMHappyHour, we got to chat with Lisa about everything from her iconic 90's debut to the charity that she started, Camp Lisa–a charity that helps provide summer camp scholarships to kids who would otherwise not be able to afford the experience.
We grabbed all the creami-licious #ButterChardonnay we could find for this episode, so #WineDown with us the right way with your own bottle and Lisa crooning through your speakers. You can find Lisa’s Sweet Relief episode on YouTube here as well as her podcast episode on Spotify and Apple Podcasts.
#4 Mondo Cozmo
Mondo Cozmo is such an easy-going guy to host, and such an incredibly talented writer, musician and rockstar performer, but this Sweet Relief show was extra special because it was our first show that started our partnership with the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund. Cheers to supporting artists!
#5 Chaz Cardigan
And down to the TOP5 For this #WineDownWednesday, we’re throwing it back to last summer, when alternative singer-songwriter Chaz Cardigan brought a sweet set of acoustic tunes to the virtual JaM Cellars stage. During his episode, we chatted with him about his upcoming music & projects, how his childhood nickname led to his professional title, and about his new web series, Wild World.
#6 Robert DeLong
This happy hour, pour yourself an ice cold glass of delicious Butter Chardonnay and JaM along with the oh-so talented Robert DeLong–a Los Angeles-based one-man band whose unique singer/songwriter style helped us JaM all the way into New Year’s weekend!
#7 Kylie Morgan
At JaM Cellars, it’s always happy hour. But when country music star, Kylie Morgan, is around we’re all just a little bit happier! This #WineDownWednesday, grab that bottle of Butter Cab and celebrate making it halfway through the week. Kylie is one of our faves with her sweet songs and even sweeter attitude! We hope she’ll be one of your #WineDownWednesday babes, too!
#8 Lee DeWyze
In between playing tunes live from his studio in LA, Lee DeWyze sipped on his fave JaM Cab and chatted with our host, Sam about the beginning of his music career, and the ups and downs of the musician life.
#9 Matt Costa
Up next for your #WineWednesday watch, we have the talented Matt Costa, American singer-songwriter from Huntington Beach, California. Grab your favorite bottle of rich and creami-licious Butter Chardonnay and get ready for a very special #JaMHappyHour benefiting the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

We’re rolling into sunny summer weather. And. We. Are. Here. For. It! This weekend we’ll be chillin’ the wine and heatin’ the grill, so we thought we’d share a few ways that our JaMily likes to celebrate summer #SundayFunday’s in style.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to make your next #SundayFunday just a little bit…well, Butter!
Our Favorite Ways to Sunday Funday:
Start with Sunday Brunch
Whether it’s breakfast-in-bed or brunch with your besties, no #SundayFunday is complete without an epic Sunday Brunch–even Butter if there’s a sparkling glass of #ButterBubbles next to the heaping pile of waffles.
(Check out our list of JaM wines and brunch pairings for your #SundayFunday.)
Level-up your spring picnics, Sunday Funday brunches and everything in between by bringing along the perfect JaM wines–from delicious Butter Chardonnay to easy-to-love Butter Bubbles, there will be something for all your besties at the brunch table.
Play in the Sprinkler
Who said the backyard sprinkler was just for kids?? Certainly not us. Throw on your itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, grab a bottle of delicious Butter Bubbles, crank the “Summer Festival JaM’s” poured by JaMCellars on iHeart radio and go play in the sprinkler like the good old days.
Host a Spa Day
Pick out your favorite buttery-yellow nail polish, pour yourself a glass of Butter Bubbles and spend a little time this #SundayFunday giving yourself the mani/pedi of your dreams. You can even invite a few gal pals over and give each other fun nail designs, and lather on the gooey face masks while sippin on your favorite JaM Cellars wines.
The creamy, Peachy-Queen Sugar-tini is perfect for a little royal treatment with the besties, so make sure to order a few extra bottles of Sugar Sweet White on Instacart, Amazon Fresh and Drizly before your Sunday Funday spa day.
We’d love to see your wine and face mask pics! Tag us @JaMCellars #JaMCellars so we can see how you #SundayFunday!
Wine & Yoga in the Park
Yoga class? Sorry, we thought you said “wine glass”...
Wine not nama-stay in the sun with your besties this Sunday Funday–weather permitting, of course. Grab your yoga mat and a delicious bottle of Butter as a reward after your final “ommm” and take some time this weekend to enjoy the finer things in life.
Organize a Movie Marathon
Wine down the perfect Sunday Funday with a cozy movie-and-wine marathon,
Let the gals take turns picking out their favorite movie, and scrounge up all the blankets and pillows you can find to make it uber-cozy. Spice up your movie marathon by adding a theme, like movies from the 80’s, scary movies, wine-themed movies, cheesy rom-coms, or movies that start with a “B” (for Butter, duh).
Make sure to chill the #ButterCans ahead of time, and get creative with the popcorn selection. And yes: talking IS allowed in this theater.
#SundayFunday with JaM Cellars
Hopefully this list gets you pumped up for your next Sunday Funday extravaganza. But, if you’re still looking for some more ideas, sign up for The Scoop and follow @JaMCellars on Instagram for all the #SundayFunday inspo you’ll need.
And don’t forget: life’s too short to drink anything but Butter! We can make all your #SundayFundays a little bit Butter by delivering ice cold JaM Cellars wine straight to your door in under 60 minutes (or less!) with Instacart, Amazon Fresh and Drizly. Three cheers for easy + fun Sundays!
Make sure to snap some pics for the ‘gram this Sunday Funday and share them with us over at @JaMCellars #JaMCellars #SundayFunday
We came, we sipped, we BOTTLEROCKED! From JaMSessions at the JaMpad to the endless flow of liquid sunshine #ButterChardonnay, BottleRock Napa Valley 2022 was THE best way to enjoy our first sips of summer!
Here’s a quick recap:
JaM Cellars Main Stage
The JaM Cellars main stage was popping off all weekend, especially when Metallica, Twenty One Pilots, and P!nk took center stage. Some of us even found a patch of grass and called it home for most of the day, soaking up the sun n’ sips… EPIC moment? How about P!nk flying over the crowd?! IYKYK!
If you’ve JaM'ed with us before you’ll know, there’s no party like a JaMPad party! BottleRock’s official 5th stage (and our very own acoustic stage and VIP lounge!) was definitely a highlight of the fest. The JaMPad JaMSessions were THE spot to BottleRock like stars. We even got to dance our booties off to Michael Franti at the JaMPad until the sun went down. Most memorable moment? Can you SWOON any harder over Ron Artis II’s daughters taking center stage to sing chorus!?
Re-live these memories!! Tune in on our YouTube anytime to rewatch the LIVE JaMSessions from the JaMPad at BottleRock.
After we danced til we dropped, JaMFans got a chance to regroup at the brand NEW Butter Cab-ana.
Our JaMbassadors poured plenty of Butter Cab and Butter Bubbles in between selfie sessions at the Butter Cab-ana photo booth. (If you went to the Butter Cab-ana but didn't take a selfie...did it even happen?) Also, festival-goers got to hang out with us for LIVE meet-and-greets with BottleRock artists at 5pm every day (Justus Bennetts, Ron Artis II, and Wild Rivers). Yes, we got the hookup…
Full JaM Cellars Lineup
BottleRock was totally better with Butter!
Our headliners: Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet, Toast Sparkling and Sugar Sweet White were pouring all throughout the festival at concessions stands and the JaMPad.
And for the first time ever, JaMFans were able to sip on the newest additions to the Butter lineup, Butter Cab and Butter Bubbles, exclusively available at the JaM Cellars Butter Cab-ana —a rock-star photo booth experience that was also new for this year!
Check out our BottleRock2022 highlight reel for all the sippable moments you may have missed:

See you soon, JaMFans!
This isn’t our first rodeo! We’ve done our share of packing for music festivals and would like to give you our top tips for an easy-to-love weekend. Mainly, what you should (and shouldn’t) be packing for all upcoming sipping & JaMming shenanigans. You have more important things to do as you prep for the weekend, so sip back and relax.
Below, we’ve rounded up a few “must-haves” for an epic, comfy, rockstar-worthy festival experience!
1. Beach Blanket or Yoga Mat
We know you’re going to be dancing ‘til you drop. Make sure to pack a bright yellow (easy to find!) beach blanket or yoga mat so you have a cushy place to land when it’s time for a ButterBreak in the shade. You’ll be glad to chill on a whim when the mood strikes!
2. Crossbody or Fanny Pack
News flash! All bags brought onto the festival grounds must be 12x12x6” or less…Forget dragging a big ol’ purse all over, keep your essentials in a super cute holographic crossbody like this one. OR Consider this adorable yellow fanny pack or trendy yellow crossbody. Security-friendly AND keeps you cute while cruising through the entry gates?! You’re VIP status already!
3. Reusable Water Bottle
Stay hydrated, BottleRockers and festie besties!! Here’s a helpful reminder to sip plenty of water between glasses of Butter.
Reusable water bottles (up to 1L) are invited to the party, and so are these foldable yellow water bottles! All bottles must be empty when you enter the gates, then fill ‘em up and sip ‘em down at the water stations found throughout BottleRock. Good for the planet? Check. Will keep you hydrated? Double-check!
4. Sunglasses and Hats
This BottleRock, throw some shade…the good kind!
Trends may come and go, but good sense never goes out of style. Don’t forget to pack a pair of sunglasses and a hat (or two) to provide a little shade from the dazzling California sun.
5. Face Wipes and Sunscreen
The cardinal sin of music festivals: slacking on skin protection!
Keep your bronze, ditch the burn. Add a mini sunscreen and a pack of refreshing face wipes to your list. Dancing is hard work and your skin might be craving a cleanse. Face wipes will come in handy for those between-show-touch-ups. Don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen!
*Aerosol sunscreen is not allowed inside BottleRock, so grab a smaller bottle of your favorite sunblock and throw it in your fanny pack for those midday rays.
6. Tame Your Mane
Keep your head bobbing and hair rocking. Pack a few headbands, hair clips, scarves or bandanas to tame your unruly mane and save time for more sipping and less straightening.
Rely on the help of your festival-ready hair accessories to tame your tresses when the dancing starts. Also, consider packing a mini container of dry shampoo powder to make sure your beautiful locks stay fresh no matter how much rocking happens.
7. Hand Sanitizer
This one probably goes without saying, but you’ll def want to remember a bottle of hand sanitizer. Soap can be hard to come by, and it’s never a bad thing to be extra cootie-free! More high-fives, please!
8. Portable Phone Charger
No one likes the “low battery” during a music festival–especially when you're in the middle of the silent disco not knowing where your festie bestie is. Pack a portable phone charger to keep your phone alive and your crew connected. Back up plan: meet at the Butter Cab-ana!
Forgot to pack something for your BottleRockin’ weekend? No worries! There will be an onsite general store for all things fashion, festival and fun! They’ll have things like gum, lip balm, over-the-counter meds, etc…. Thanks for thinking of basically everything, BottleRock!
