Dec(orate) the Halls
Did you know you can have your favorite wines delivered straight to your door? What a time to be alive!
One of the very first things we love to do as soon as October rolls around is order and open a bottle of Butter and get to decorating. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a very crafty person, decorating for fall is a very easy task. And you don’t have to break the bank to go all out, either! Making fall decorations yourself saves lots of $$$ and you can find plenty of inspiration on Pinterest and Instagram if you know where to look!
Here are some of our favorite fall decoration ideas to sip on:
Netflix + Chill(ed Wine)
The idea of cuddling up on the couch with a big bowl of buttery popcorn and a bottle of creami-licious Butter Chardonnay (a match made in heaven, if you ask us) gets our little hearts all aflutter.
Slip into your cozy slippers, fire up Netflix, pour yourself a Butter-ful glass of your fav chardonnay and check out some of our favorite fall movies to get you in the autumn mood:
● The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: This show follows a young half-witch + half-mortal as she battles evil forces–both from the devil himself and her highschool peers (scary, for sure!).
● Virgin River: Heart-warming, and filmed in a stunning fall-like location, this series makes for a perfect autumn show.
● Gilmore Girls: Yes, we know you’ve probably already seen this one (probably 100+ times!) but when fall rolls around, we can’t help but add this warm, feel-good show to our queue.
● Notting Hill: Another classic, Julia Roberts delivers the most delicious fall vibes. Need we say more?
● October Sky: A true story of a coal miner's son who takes up rocketry, as a way to escape his small town. Cozy and thought-provoking.
● Santa Clarita Diet: Quirky and absurd (in a good way), Drew Barrymore absolutely slays the role of an accidental vampire living in the suburbs of Santa Clarita. Think: Horror series, but make it *cute.*
JaM Cellars Wines & Tailgating Food; Our Number One Draft Pick
Football season has begun, and we’re kicking it off the best way we know how: with JaM Cellars all-star wines and plenty of tailgating snacks. We’re huge fans of this sport (or rather, the sips and food that comes along with it).
There's so much to love about this popular Sunday activity (even if you’re not a football enthusiast yourself) so here’s a run-down on the best tailgating food to pair with your favorite JaM Cellars pours. Get ready to score a touch-down with your friends and family.
An easy grab-n-go snack like these loaded nacho packs deserves an equally convenient and delicious drink–might we suggest ButterCans? No muss, no fuss, but packs a creamy fruity punch—think baked lemon meringue but yummier! Perf with cheesy, spicy, salty goodness!
Trust us, when it comes to fried chicken and sparkling wine, this celeb-level partnership will blow your mind. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never go back to serving your fried chicken with coke, lemonade, or sweet tea ever again. Fizzy bubbles cut through crispy, salty, fried chicken, making each bite more-ish than the next…err YUM! Try it and dare to tell us you don’t love it! We’re listening #JaMCellars
Pizza & JaM Cabernet Sauvignon
Whether you’re a homemade-pizza-aficionado or a pizza-delivery-lover, you can't go wrong with this easy tailgate staple on game day. Unless you’re eating pizza without drinking a JaM good cabernet, that is. Le gasp!
Pizza goes great with a juicy red wine like JaM Cab because rich, ripe flavors of red and blackberries give the marinara more bite and make the cheese topping taste even creamier. It’s hard to go wrong any toppings you want to add, so feel free to get creative!
We take BYOB (Bring Your Own Butter Chardonnay) very seriously around here. You can find ButterCans in 4-packs at your favorite grocery store, or have them shipped directly to you from the JaMStore so you can spend more time putting together your tailgate outfit than shopping for treats.
Chardonn-HEYYY to Fall!
It’s finally fall, y’all. In our opinion, there’s no better weather than sweater weather. The only way to make this season even more spice-tacular is by breaking open a bottle (or two!) of Butter, to celebrate.
Sip into the new season with us!
On a scale of one to one hundred, how excited are you to get back into hosting parties?! Specifically, Hallo-Wine parties?
We just took a DNA test, turns out we’re 100% that witch.
Even though Halloween is mostly about making sure the kids have the. best. time. ever. that doesn't mean we adults can't pour a fresh glass of #ButterChardonnay and join in on the ghoulish fun with our gal pals. Not even close. You might even argue that Hallo-Wine is one of the best holidays for adults. (That’s why we make ButterCans easy for on-the-go trick or treating, right?!)
Whether you're planning to spend this haunting day with your ghoul-friends and witches, or you’re curling up on the couch with a spooky flick and big glass of Butter Chardonnay, we hope you get a kick out of these fun ways to celebrate Halloween, with a hefty pour of a JaM Cellars treats, of course.
Carve Pumpkins (or Whatever Else You Have Lying Around)
First of all: can you think of anything more Hallo-Wine-y than carving pumpkins with our Hallo-Wine JaMs playlist pouring out of the speakers, and chilled Butter Chardonnay dripping out of the cauldron? We didn’t think so.
Also, did you know that pumpkins aren’t the only thing you can carve?
While pumpkins are certainly the most popular option for carving, there are tons of other fruits and veggies that are just begging for a cute little face this Halloween. For example, have you ever made a spooky face in a pineapple? What about a witch in a watermelon? A carving in a cantaloupe? Okay, we’ll stop.
Time to pumpkin-spice things up. And if you mess up, don’t worry! It's easy to repair a broken jack o'lantern– just use a pumpkin patch! (Sorry, we couldn’t resist…) You can also pull out the acrylic paints and keep it simple, or slap on a few Halloween stickers and call it a day. No judgment here…that just means there’s more time for another glass of Butter!
Here are some of our favorite ideas:
Take Your HalloWine Pairings to the Next Level
Homemade hummus is way better than the store-bought stuff, and it’s frightfully easy to make. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll be ready to rock with a bright, orange Halloween hummus.
Bonus points if you display it next to a few ButterCans. The stone fruit and baked-lemon notes are the perfect companion to the nutty flavor of the hummus, and it ends with a rich vanilla finish–making this pairing stand out as a cult favorite.
This easy recipe makes mummies out of Milanos in less time than you can say “trick-or-treat” with the simple addition of melted white chocolate. They’re cute, delicious, and crazy easy. Pair them with a bottle of our rich, bold, and easy-to-love JaM Cab, because… is there anything better than chocolate and the most delish red wine? We don’t think so.
Pro tip: Opt for the raspberry Milano’s; they pull out the lush blackberries, black plums, and black currant in the JaM Cabernet. A boo-tiful wine pairing if we’ve ever seen one.
When it comes to quick-and-simple Halloween treats, you can’t go wrong with making an already-delicious snack even more tempting. Now, hear us out: pretzels and Sugar Sweet White. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
This Halloween party trick is a total treat: the honeyed citrus blossom, lush peach and sweet Meyer lemonade notes of the Sugar Sweet White are just screaming for a little salty action, and these witchy pretzels are a fang-tastic addition.
No cooking is needed with this sweet and salty Halloween treat. Simply toss the ingredients together and you’re good to go! It’ll take you longer to find the wine glasses than to make this snack mix. The only scary part is that it’s addicting, so... beware.
Hints of white peach, orange blossom, pineapple, and honeydew add a light toastiness to each bite of snack mix, making this Hallo-Wine treat frightfully good.
The best thing is, you can prepare for your party and stock up on all the wine you need, without ever having to leave your house. You can find us in the wine aisle, or have your favorite JaM Cellars wine delivered straight to your door (in under 60 minutes!) while you mix up your Halloween treats.

As far as we’re concerned, there are only three rules for Hallo-Wine:
1) Be in costume
2) Eat candy
3) Treat yourself to JaM Cellars wines—there’s a wine for every-ghoul, find yours.
Other than that, your only responsibilities are to have fun and (as always) drink responsibly. Anything goes–we’re just here for the (JaM Cellars) boos.
After the tricky year that we’ve all had, it’s time for some treats. Adult treats, that you can have delivered straight to your door, in under 60 minutes! The scariest parties are the ones without Butter, so make sure to stock up ahead of time.
Find us in your closest wine aisle or delivered straight to your door! You don’t even have to dress up and go door-to-door. Being an adult is fun, right?? Happy Hallo-Wine, from our JaMily to yours!
If you couldn't tell, we’re pretty big fans of music around here. And honestly, with a name like “JaM Cellars” how could we not?!
When our founders, John and Michele (the ”J” and the “M” in JaM) launched JaM Cellars, their main goal was to make delicious, accessible wines that everyone could sip back and enjoy. You know how sharing a great bottle of wine brings people together? Well, we think great music does that, too!
To keep the JaMs (and wine) flowing at all times, here are all the ways we have for you (Our JaMFans!) to JaM with wine, music, and us–from curated Spotify playlists to in-person music events!
Keep sippin' on the best summer JaMs, all year long! Our perfect pour of all your favorite festival artists from BottleRock Napa Valley to Ohana Fest, and more. Keep those summer vibes rolling and tune into our "Summer Festival JaMs" playlist, poured by JaM Cellars on iHeart radio! This sweet summertime playlist is perfect to sip on for any occasion.
Just sip n’ click play!
