Sip, smile and unwine-d...
July 25th is National Wine & Cheese Day
Which is just the perfect excuse to open some JaM Cellars wine and make some super yummy, guilt-free (whaaat? It’s a Holiday!!), cheesy snacks. Right?!
Creamy’n’Spicy: Creami-licious Butter Chardonnay takes this spicy Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese to the next level cooling the heat of this grilled cheese while bringing out the baked lemon fruitiness of your fav chardonnay.
Berry Meaty: Rich, dark JaM Cab punches way above its weight with these Philly Cheese Steak Sliders. All about the fruit (think blueberries, blackberries and plums), JaM Cab brings out the juicy satisfying char flavors of the steak. Yum!
Sweet Tooth? Who doesn’t love a wine and cheese dessert pairing? This Perfect 5-Star No Bake Cheesecake brings out all delicate tropical-fruit flavors of Sugar Sweet White. Sweet never tasted so Mmmm Mmmm GOOD.
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?
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!

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!
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!
