Sip, smile and unwine-d...
Hooray! July is #NationalPicnicMonth and we’re ready for some fun (and Butter) in the sun! Grab your gingham, govinos and head to greener pastures for the chic-est summer wine-sippin’ picnic you ever did see! Here’s how to have a Butter picnic…
Stock up on #SummerSippers! No great picnic started with a salad, so get your Butter Chardonnay, Toast Sparkling and Sugar Sweet White delivered pre-chilled right to your door, or simply pick them up from your nearest wine aisle on the way! Just pop your zip code into our WineFinder to find your closest store.
Turn up the JaMs! Once you’ve laid out your blanket and cracked open your first ice-cold ButterCan, you’re just a button click away from getting the alfresco fiesta officially started! Grab that wireless speaker and press play on our "Summer Festival JaMs poured by JaM Cellars" playlist on iHeart Radio. It’s full of our fav festival hits and freshly updated with the 2021 lineup for Ohana and BottleRock!
Easy-peasy and eco-friendly! Save the mess and waste by pre-packing individual servings cup-o-charcuterie, pre-made sandwiches, and some jam-jar salads. In some eco-friendly picnic-ware. Remember to pack out what you bring in! ButterCans and wine bottles are ready to recycle! #Picnicgoals achieved.
Friendly Fun! Whether you’re at the park, beach, or back-yarding it, the ultimate day party picnic isn’t complete without a little friendly competition with your besties. We’re talking larger-than-life Connect 4, or go ahead and pack your bocce set! OR, for the ultimate DIY repurposing just stack up your used ButterCans for Butter Bowling! Pass me another ButterCan, please!
Stay cold, ice-cold! July = sizzling summer temps! Keep it cool with handheld misters and a cooler full of ice (on wheels!). The last person to show is responsible for grabbing an extra bag of ice on the way over (it’s never too much!). Not only will your Butter, Toast Sparkling and Sugar Sweet White stay chilled, you can also use it to dip in your own personal cooling towel to stay hella chill.
And as simple as that you’ve got yourself the most perfectly executed #JaMCellars sippin’ picnic plan all #NationalPicnicMonth long! Snap some pics for the ‘gram and sip, smile and share! @JaMCellars #JaMCellars
Book Club is officially cool again (wasn’t it always?). It’s even easier to connect with your gal pals over your favorite reads thanks to today’s virtual vibes and…wine! Here’s how we’re reading between the wines…
• A super cute bean bag to cuddle up on
• Your own personal Butter yellow ice bucket filled with ButterCans chilled for your sipping pleasure.
• Sticky notes, your favorite pen to write in the margins & a bookmark—you can even personalize your own!
Start your own private Facebook page and invite your besties near and far! Read these tips on starting the best book club ever—totally virtual. Buy matching Book Club shirts to wear on your monthly Zoom chat…or better yet, create your own slogan and get them made! Or get super creative and theme out each get-together based on the book.
Join other book-club babes virtually at; Girls Night In Book Club!, and Read a Book With Kara. It’s always helpful to have recommendations at the ready for next month’s pick, so stay up-to-date on some of the latest releases (these picks from Oprah are always a good idea).
If reading is totally your "Me-Time" JaM, set a date-night-in with yourself. Start with a checklist of all the books everyone should read during their lifetime and dig in. Or start with these Top 30 if you need something more bite-sized. Buy yourself a cute journal and use some of the discussion prompts on Goodreads to expand your mind. Could Butter be a metaphor for life? Discuss with yourself, you’re bound to get the right answer.
Book Club is a great way to relax online, chat, and sip wine with girlfriends and new friends, or for a solo escape…and we are here for it! Butter, books, and besties…is there anything better?
The Peach-Queen Sugar-tini
This creamy, peachy concoction with a touch of sweetness is perfect for a little royal treatment with the besties!
1.5oz of your favorite vanilla vodka
Top off with a splash of peach puree
Whipped cream and peach slice to garnish
Tastes as pretty as you look! Happy sipping, gals.
We’d love to see your reviews and pics, tag us @JaMCellars #JaMCellars
Whether you’re tailgating solo or with your at-home squad, the Big Game is still ON which means we’re here to help you set up the most-epically-easy at-home tailgate, JaM-style!
Set the Sip Roster:
First things first, draft your wine line-up for delivery straight to your door in time for kick-off. With MVP’s like Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cab, Toast Sparkling, and Sugar Sweet White, your roster is already full of game day winners!
Next, draft your Super-Bowl-cheersing dream team and invite your besties for the al-fresco game time.
Once you have your rosters set, time to gear up and set your at-home scene like the college tailgate you know and love.
TIP: tee up disposable utensils and GoVinos for easy post-game clean-up. All that cheersing will leave you tired at the end of the day.
Pre-bag some popcorn to keep everyone’s fingers from double-dipping.
Serve up seven-layer dip in their own cups.
Mini Queso Cheese Balls are so easy and delish, you’ll be chef Rookie Of The Year.
Fire up the grill with one of these 51 grillable tailgate recipes - don’t forget to supply Butter to the GrillMaster in charge.
Need some inspiration off the bench? Check out these 12 tailgating recipes for a practice run before the big day.
The pros may be warming up the turf, but you are MVP of your lawn - so don’t miss a chance to rev up a little friendly competitive spirit with ButterCans in hand.
Throw a classic with a game of ladder toss, work off those extra weenies with a little Spikeball, play a game of Tipsy Tower with Toast Sparkling, and is it even a tailgate if there’s not a game of Butter Pong?
Now you’re ready to rumble! Whether or not your team brings home the big win, make sure you bring home plenty of Butter and JaM to keep you quenched the whole game through. Find a store locally, order online with Instacart, or get your wine with same-day delivery on Drizly! Cheers!
The season is scary, our at-home vibes are howling, and simply nothing will stop us from sippin’ and spookin’ our way into a festive, socially-distanced Halloween! So, pour yourself a creamy glass or two of #ButterChardonnay and read up on our tips for an unBOOlievable 2020 Hallo-WINE…
Haunt Your House. Home base is where it’s at in 2020, so go ALL OUT with your at-home decorating. Make like Jack Skellington and vibe with these decorating ideas…
• DIY a deadman’s hanging cage (to lock up your Butter!)
• Spookify your JaM Cab and dress it up as a wine bottle mummy, slip into a little costume of its own, or try one of these DIY bottles of boo’s!
• If you’re feeling a little lazy bones, perfect…toss up any of these super easy Halloween decorations and then crack open a #ButterCan and get sipping.
You’ve been BOOzed! Adults need some fun too, so we’re reinventing “Ding-Dong-Ditch” mischief and making it a little bit BOOzier!
Step 2: Ring your neighbors’ doorbell with a “Da de dum dum daaaaa”. Better yet with all these video doorbells—play in costume!
Step 3: Leave your ghoulish goodies on their doorstep for a trick AND a treat!
Step 4: Run out of sight!
Add a note to “Pass It On” to keep the good vibes going throughout your neighborhood.
At Home Trick-or-Treating. Staying home is the new going out, but you can still get spooky and have some frightful fun with your nearest and dearest—just be sure you know the answer to “Witch way to the Butter?”…
• Candy grab-bowls are so 2019. This DIY Halloween candy slide will keep the tricks and treats flowing.

4 Steps To Netflix & Chill(ed Wine)
Watching Netflix with popcorn? That’s nice enough. Watching Netflix with the squad (socially distant, obvs) and pouring Butter with your popcorn (#ButterChardonnay that is!)… NOW we’re talking!
Thanks to the Netflix Party app, we’re not missing out on movie night with our besties, even now. Here’s our HOW-TO for enjoying our most chill(ed wine) night in together:
2. Pick a flick! Our faves?
Want to go full Netflix-series-binge? Here’s the inside scoop on the JaM team’s top shows...
» The Office & California Candy Dry Rosé - “Hilarious.” “My absolute go-to.” “Makes me laugh out loud, and I catch something new every time I watch it.” “If you’re looking for something to watch while multi-tasking (which I’m ALWAYS doing), this is your show.”
» Schitt’s Creek & Butter Chardonnay- “Beyond entertaining and funny.” “It just keeps getting better! I catch myself doing the T-rex wrist thing Alexis does, all the time.” “My go-to, easily enjoyable!”
3. Get on the group chat and set a time and date for your wine-sipping, show-viewing extravaganza! If you have a particularly “hard-to-nail-down-options” kinda group, get everyone on Facebook Messenger and take a poll. While you’re there, quiz the crew to figure out which JaM Cellars wine they are! A super fun way to choose which bottles to pop with your popcorn….
4. Pants are optional but #Butter with your popcorn is non-negotiable. Make sure you’ve got plenty of Butter Chardonnay, California Candy Dry Rosé, Toast Sparkling & JaM Cabernet. Check out our WineFinder to locate your closest wine aisle. OR don’t even worry about leaving the house-- have your wine delivered to your door through Drizly, Instacart, or by ordering online at the JaMStore (shipping is complimentary through May! Yasss!).
Streaming and sipping? Tag us in your Netflix Party Selfie with @JaMCellars so we can give you a virtual cheers!
