Sip, smile and unwine-d...
We don’t know about you, but around here, everything's better with a little Butter. Because we’re (albeit, self-proclaimed) experts at recognizing the finer things in life, we have a few ideas on how to make every day a little bit…well…Butter! And with ButterCans, NEW Butter Cab and NEW Butter Bubbles, there’s so many options for a #ButterDay.
Love a great soundtrack while you sip? JaM has got you with yummy playlists to go with your fav wines? From Yellow Happy Hour to Wine + Dine, we’ll have you dancing on Cloud Wine in no time. Crank up your speakers, pop the chilled Butter Bubbles, and get your endorphins flowing with those sassy dance moves.
Pour & Prep

You can browse cool stays on Airbnb, scan for great deals on Domestic flights, and brush up on European backpacking tips from the comfort of your couch–glass of Butter in hand of course.

Go for a Walk
Want to have a #ButterDay? Take a hike…literally.
Not only does this help boost your levels of vitamin D, but it also gets you out of your house and gives you some much-needed change of scenery. Grab a ButterCan (they’re pocket-sized), and head outside. Plan ahead (check out this great list of hikes by state) and bonus points for getting your friends or family to join you. Just make sure they pack their own ButterCans!
Chill Out (And Chill Your #Bubbles!)
More now than ever before, it’s important to find the time to just BE.
With all the distractions, notifications, and responsibilities that we face throughout the day, sometimes it’s just nice to sit and think. Pour yourself a glass of Butter Bubbles, post up on the porch, sink into the couch or even slide into bed, and just focus on relaxing.

Almost sold out!
Congrats to all our ButterLovers – we’re almost sold out! But we planned ahead (Yay!) and more tasty Butter has been mellowing and getting ready for this very occasion. The 2016 vintage is creamy and Butter-ful—just the way you like it.
Watch for its release in stores this August and at JaM Napa and online. Grab a bottle and tell us what you think on Facebook or Instagram. Better yet, grab your friends for a Butter-tasting and post some pics #jamcellars #ButterisBetter. Don’t have any of the 2015 vintage? Well…we do have maybe just a couple cases left here at Butter HQ…get ‘em quick.
Have you ever looked back at your camera roll and wish you could go back and relive the memories all over again? Maybe from a weekend with your besties, sitting on the beach, or belly-laughing on the sofa?
That’s how we feel after our fun filled weekend in San Diego as the official wine of KAABOO Del Mar! Anyone reading this who went, THANK YOU for hanging out, showing us a great time and sharing the love for Butter Chardonnay!
We had an amazing time broadcasting live from the ButterLounge with KyXy 96.5 FM Radio’s Susan Devincent, and checking in on Facebook Live with Sonic from Energy 103.7 FM. Everyone in the ButterLounge got a chance to get up close and personal with Echosmith and Finish Ticket, not to mention rock out alongside Aerosmith, Jimmy Buffet, and Jack Johnson on the mainstage.
Sunshine, live music and a chilled glass of creamy-licious Butter Chardonnay—now that’s our kinda JaM!
Have a chilled-out evening!
Ok, so the kids are headed back to school and nights are drawing in…but that doesn’t mean we have to pack up the patio set just yet. Shorter and slightly cooler evenings are made for chilling by the fire pit, or candlelight with a glass of JaM Cabernet. When the temps are still high, we’ll put our JaM Cab on ice—its berry flavors wrapped in vanilla softness will be perfectly rich and fresh to go with whatever’s on the grill.
Our only advice—keep it simple (who has time for menus and tablescapes anyway?) To help you on your way to a berry-licious, chilled-out evening with great wine, summer jams and friends (or just one special friend), we’ve put together a ready to go playlist. After all JaM is our kinda Cab! Cheers!
5. We love it with everything.
Toast Sparkling complements foods all the way from sushi to sliders and back to benedicts. Toast with roasted salted truffle marcona almonds from one of our fave grocery stores is a ninja pairing move you can treasure for the rest of your life. (You’re welcome!)
4. Two words: Summer Berries.
Toast loves the summer and its bounty of berries. We’ve been known to add a slice of strawberry or a raspberry to our glass of Toast for a little summer chic.
3. It’s the little things!
Toast-ing is the perfect way to celebrate, well…everything you’re grateful for. For us that’s a straight hair day, the kids not fighting, hearing our favorite song on the radio (currently DNCE Cake by the Ocean – another great pairing with Toast BTW!), getting out that red wine stain (and sipping Toast instead to not risk it again!) and of course Thursdays a.k.a “Little Fridays” (or choose whatever your favorite day of the week is!).
2. You can’t beat the POP.
Nothing says FUN like the pop of Toast’s cork! Seriously, it’s one of the happiest sounds on earth, we LOVE it! This picture of Michele is one of our all-time favorites and remember her telling us “I could do this all day!” Yes Michele, yes you can!
1. Reason. Who needs one?
We’ll be Toasting to YOU all our JaMLovers…thank you for choosing our wines and sharing them with your loved ones. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and send us a message any time, we want to hear from you!
Downtown Napa rocked this 4th of July!
We hung out at the ButterBus, sipping wine and playing cornhole. And we danced to awesome BottleRock bands The Mowgli’s and Panic is Perfect on the JaM Cellars stage. We love throwing a good party and we had double reason to celebrate—the 4th is also John’s birthday! What better way to celebrate than bringing friends, neighbors and visitors to Napa together with great wine and music. The best part? JaM made it free for everyone, now THAT’s a party! Check it out here.
