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.

We’ve reduced capacity (to keep everyone safe!) but the fun is still at full volume for you to enjoy bottles and by-the-glass Butter, JaM, Toast, and Sugar Sweet.
#JaMHappyHour. Sorry boss, gotta fly! On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays be sure to stock up your Butter and block off your calendar starting at 4pm PDT because #JaMHappyHour is rocking over on our JaM Cellars Facebook Live, sign up to get a reminder to shut down email and switch off that Zoom!

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.
Scary-good Appetizers. An all-candy diet may be tempting but sneak in some bloody good snacks to balance out your sweet tooth. Here’s some of our favorite simple treats that match our haunting mood.
Happy Haunting to you our JaMily! Whatever you do, make sure you’re stocked up with plenty of Butter, ButterCans and JaM Cab to get your Halloween festivities howling! Deliver the ghouly goods right to your doorstep with one of our delivery partners including Doordash, Drizly, and Amazon Fresh!
Sweet never tasted SO good…
We’ve got a sweet tooth that only Sugar will cure! Every now and then we all crave a little something sweet, and right now, maybe a little more than usual? Seeing as you asked, John and Michele decided to add another easy-to-love wine to the JaM Cellars line up…
Sugar Sweet White is a delightfully fresh, bright and balanced Californian Moscato with just the right kiss of sweetness. Super fruity, refreshing, lower alcohol, and just perfect to put a smile on your face.
• So Chill. Sugar is delicious when served chilled straight from the fridge or ice bucket. Check out these fast-chilling tips (according to science) to get your bottle chilled down fast!
• Sweet Chic. These v cool vintage coup glasses make this perfect aperitif feel extra chic. Pop them in the freezer 30 minutes before you serve to keep things frosty and fancy.
• Go Big or Go Salty. Sweet and salty is a rock-star combo. Go, “Nothing Fancy”, style with this creamy sesame turmeric dip or dig into your favorite bag of potato chips. Doritos? Kettle Chips? Your house, your rules.
• Spice it Up. Sweeter wines, like Sugar, make a great date with something spicy! Check out this round-up of bougie spicy snacks, or order in some spicy Pad Thai or Kung Pow Chicken from your local go-to delivery to keep it low-key.
• A Bite of Bitter (say that 5 times fast!). Lay out a pickle-y bitter-y snack-y board to sample for a bittersweet snack-a-long adventure. Include some of these quirky pickles, a batch of parm brussel sprouts in the air-fryer you’ve been meaning to use, and this yum-licious candied orange peel dipped in dark chocolate.
• Double Down on Dessert. Sweet wines with dessert is another level. Layout bowls of your favorite candy treats buffet-style to sample and snack while you sip after dinner. You can even DIY your own version of your fave candy bar at home!
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!
