The Ultimate Wine Party Tricks and Tips for Summer!

Hey party babes, summer is for sipping! So, you’ve got your besties on the way, the Butter chilled, and the hot JaMs prepped…you’re already killin’ it. Time to take your summer bash to the NEXT level with a bit of party flair–the JaM Cellars way, of course.

Here are a few fun (and surprising) party tips and tricks to pull out next time you’re hosting the best wine party in town!

"Anything-But-A-Cooler" Cooler

Sure, a cooler might keep your delish Butter bevvies cold a little longer, but if you’re trying to impress your guests with a few party moves, an everything-but-the-cooler cooler will do the trick. Plus, the sips won’t last long in that cooler, anyway, when it’s Butter you have on ice! 

Some of our favorite non-cooler cooler ideas are: 

  • An inflatable baby pool, filled with ice, bottles of Butter Bubbles, Butter Chardonnay and a few cases of refreshing ButterCans floating around. 

  • A hollowed-out watermelon, filled to the brim with ice and our easy-to-love ButterCans.

  • A cleaned-out pumpkin; it perfectly holds a bottle of #Butter, and ButterCans. Make sure to keep plenty nearby and restock when you start running low.  

Chill Wine Bottles *Quickly*

It’s happened to the best of us; you ran out of chilled Butter wine and now you’re trying to cool your reserves. But you can easily turn this tragedy into a party trick and have your guests sipping cold wine in no time! Here are a few ways to chill JaM Cellars wine quickly:

  • Make an ice bucket for your bottle, but with one extra special ingredient: salt! Salt helps bring down the freezing temperature of water, which will chill your #Butter faster.

  • Frozen grapes are not only a tasty treat, they're also a great way to chill wine quickly, without watering it down. Pop a couple in your glass and get back to partyin! 

  • Wrap a damp paper towel around the bottle of wine, and sit it in the freezer. The damp towel will freeze quickly, and thanks to the frozen towel, the wine will chill in half the time it usually would! Less time preppin, more time sippin. 

Saber Your Butter Bubbles

Sabering is a totally extra way of opening a bottle of bubbly, and who doesn’t want to look like a boss in front of their party guests?? Add a lil #SundayFunday flair next time you’re bustin’ out the brunch bubbles.

Here’s how to fancily pop the bubbly Butter Bubbles at your next party:

For all the deets, check out Food52 video here

1. First, grab your saber of choice. If you don’t have a real saber (lol), a hearty kitchen knife or metal butter knife will do the (party) trick.

2. Put your bubbly in the freezer for about 10 mins. You want the bottle to be very cold. 

3. Get al fresco with it. Butter be safe and head outside in the backyard for this one!

4. Remove the cage from the bottle and locate the seam that runs up the side of the bottle. 

5. (With the bottle pointing away from you and everyone else in your crew–pups too!) In one long motion, run the back edge of your sturdy kitchen knife firmly and quickly up the seam of the bottle, and through the lip.

6. TIP: hold your “saber” at a slight angle rather than perpendicular.

YASSS! Now you’ve officially gotten your party off with the ultimate bang. OF COURSE, safety first, please try this party trick responsibly. 

Wine Ice Cubes

Literally the last thing you want on a hot summer day is a warm beverage. Cool down your party guests with a fun party trick: JaM Cellars wine ice cubes! These fun and simple wine ice cubes will add life to your drink and cool you down when the party starts getting HAWT. 

Here are some fun wine ice cube ideas for your next party:

Turn Up the Party JaMs

And for our next trick…drum roll please… the music! From our #SundayFunday playlist to the Classic Christmas JaMs playlist on Spotify, we have all your different party vibe needs covered! 

Make sure to follow us on Spotify so you never miss a new playlist, and stay up-to-date on IG, FB & Twitter

#ButterDays of Summer: 5 Ways to Chill Down with JaM Cellars Wine

Summer is FINALLY here, and things are heating up! To help you babes chill down and enjoy every, single, icy-cold sip, we’ve rounded up 5 ways to chill with JaM Cellars. So, forget the dog days, grab some ice, and sip into the #ButterDays. 

Thankfully, your faves pair perfectly with whatever fun-in-the-sun plans you have on your itinerary–whether you're headed to the beach or partaking in a boozy brunch with your besties.

Plan a Beach Day 

Summer beach days are the best days. The warm sun, the salty air, the chilled wines…what’s not to love? 

But, don't feel like you're obligated to stick with the tradition of warm beer on the beach just because that’s what you’ll usually find in the sandy cooler. Next time you’re planning a beach day, be the star of the show and surprise your beach babes with a few cases of delicious, ice-cold ButterCans! With all the wine you can carry and all the JaM’s you’ll need via the “Summer Festival JaM’s” playlist on iHeartRadio, you’re going to be one heck of a chiller this summer. 

Don’t have access to the beach? That’s okay…a girl can dream! Lay out your favorite beach towel, throw a few cases of ButterCans on ice, turn up your speakers and you’re ready to go–without even leaving your house! Bonus points if the sun is out! 

Chill Out Poolside

Did you know that you can also plan a wine-by-the-pool day even if you don’t have a pool of your own? With apps like Swimply and Airbnb, finding a pool to sip beside for the day is almost as easy as opening a bottle of Butter! 

Or, if you’re in the mood to stay local, you could call up one of your neighbors/friends to see if they’ll let you use their pool in exchange for a case of cold ButterCans. Pro tip: Make sure to bring plenty for yourself! Butter makes for the ultimate creami-licious poolside sip, so make sure to stock up on your fave JaM Cellars wine before you sink into your floatie for the day.  

Brunch with the Besties

Another way to keep your chill game strong throughout the summer? Find a shady patio to post up and get brunching with your besties! No matter the season, brunch is an important constant in our lives (just like your ever faithful, always there for you, Butter wines). But thanks to sweet summertime, we have a few extra reasons to sip back and enjoy a lil’ boozy brunch with the gal pals more often. 

Whether you're picnicking at a local park or taking advantage of your friend's rooftop patio, as long as you've got a healthy supply of bagels and a few bottles of Butter Bubbles (obvi), the world is your (brunch) oyster!

Check out these can’t-miss brunch and JaM Cellars wine pairings for your next gal pal get-together this summer. 

Host a S’mores Night

Think back to the last time you had a homemade s’more. The crispy-sweet crunch of the graham cracker. The salty crumbs mingled with the sticky marshmallow...mmm mmm mmmmmmm. Really, the only thing that could make that experience better would be washing down your warm, gooey creation with a tall glass of lucious, berry-licious JaM Cab!

This summer, gather the girls and host a s’mores night like you’ve never had before. Say goodbye to the s’mores of your childhood, and take it a step further! From peanut butter cups to grilled bananas, there’s a delicious s’mores recipe for everyone. Here are some of the s’mores and JaM Cellars wine pairings were obsessing over:

Reese’s Peanut Butter S’mores + JaM Cab

Pretzel S’mores Bites + Butter Bubbles 

Oatmeal chocolate chip and graham cracker cookie s’mores + ButterCans

Bourbon Bacon S'mores + Butter Cab 

Grilled Banana S’mores + Butter Bubbles 

Party on the Front Porch

Remember the Good Ol’ Days? The warm summer nights where all your closest neighbors somehow ended up on your porch, and everyone was laughing, drinking and hanging out? Recreate some of your favorite childhood memories by inviting your friends and neighbors over for a summer night porch hang/Butter bash. 

Turn your porch into the ultimate place-to-be by hanging up some fun outdoor lights, setting up a large cooler for your fave lineup of JaM Cellars wines, and cranking up the tunes. Our “Summer Festival JaM’s” playlist on iHeartRadio is just the thing you’ll be looking for as the sun goes down and the party turns up. 

Want all this summertime goodness and more delivered straight to your inbox? (No spam, we promise!) Sign up to Get the Scoop! or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter @JaMCellars #JaMCellars.

Yummy JaMBites

Everyone knows that we have delicious, easy-to-love sips in our wine & music studio… but did you know that we also have an incredible lineup of tasty bites, too?? 

From our decadent cheese board (goat gouda, Holey Cow Cheese, mixed nuts, and seasonal jam…and more) to the oh-so more-ish Brownie Points (chocolate brownies with vanilla whipped creme and caramel sauce), we’ve got a little something for everyone. We even have JaMJello Shots! Be sure to ask your JaMbassador for the current flave.

Or maybe you’ve worked up an appetite for a delicious small plate nosh? We offer select light bites from our gourmet Mediterranean neighbor, Tarla, that are perfect to enjoy in one of our indoor booths . . . or claim your spot at one of our sunny outdoor tables! 

Wine You Can’t Get Anywhere Else!

Obviously, we can’t get enough of our loveable lineup–including Butter Chardonnay, ButterCans, Butter Cab, Butter Bubbles, JaM Cabernet, Toast Sparkling, and Sugar Sweet White–but what about the exclusive wines that we offer ONLY when you visit the downtown Napa JaM Cellars wine & music studio? 

Sip on limited-release wines like the JaM Cellars North Coast Brut Sparkling, NEW 2021 JaM Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc and the 2018 JaM Cellars Napa Valley Pinot Noir. Pro tip: You can’t find these at your local grocery, so stock up while you’re here. Or Join the JaMClub and wines that rock will show up on your doorstep just like magic!

And, as if that’s not tempting enough, at 5:15pm every day, there's a complimentary toast with Toast for everyone hanging out with us in the music & wine studio!

See you soon, JaM babes!

3 Ways to JaM This 4th of July

Yeahhhhh, it's a party in the USA! It’s sweet, sweet summertime here at JaM Cellars and we have delicious wine and fizzy fireworks on the brain. Here are a few ways that we’ll be JaMming out this Fourth of July, with all of our red, wine and blue finery!

Sip on Red, Wine and Blue

Heading to the fireworks? Hosting a BBQ? Chilling on your couch? However you plan to commemorate Independence Day, you’ll want to do so with a celebratory red, wine and blue beverage. Below, we’re spilling some drink ideas to spark your imagination:

Red:

Both of our easy-to-love red wines (JaM Cabernet and Butter Cab) will be sure to please, so don’t forget to stock up

SugarBerri Wine-tail Recipe- Bright, delish, and super-simple, add this SugarBerri wine cocktail to your menu if you’re looking to treat your guests to a firecracker of a drink, but you’re short on time. Featuring our easy-to-love Sugar Sweet White, cranberry juice and topped off with bright red Campari

Raspbubbly Toast-ini- This festive recipe features our delicious bubbly wine, Toast Sparkling–a celebration in your glass, any day of the year.

White: 

Well, this one is easy ;) Do we NEED to say Butter Chardonn-YAY all day?! We’ve got a full lineup of summer sippers including Sugar Sweet White, Toast Sparkling, and Butter Bubbles. Easy-to-love wines–something for every palate. Order your Fourth of July stash today, and get it delivered straight to your door in under 60 minutes or less!

Blue: 

If you don’t have Blue Curacao on hand, you can still deck your drinks out in blue! Consider adding a festive rim to your glasses of Butter Bubbles using blue sprinkles (here’s a helpful YouTube tutorial).

OR, you could simply add a blue rock candy stick to your glass of Sugar Sweet White and call it a day. It’s festive AND easy, so you can spend more time sippin and less time preppin… win/win!

Set the Tone with the Perfect Playlist

No celebration is complete without the right kind of JaMs, and the Fourth of July is no exception. 

Once you’ve laid out your blanket and cracked open your ice-cold ButterCan, you’re just a click away from getting the alfresco fiesta officially started! Grab your bluetooth speaker and press play on our "Summer Festival JaMs poured by JaM Cellars'' playlist on iHeartRadio. 

Whether you curate a playlist of Fourth of July JaMs yourself, or turn to the pros for help (HINT: JaM Cellars’ endless curated Spotify playlists for any occasion), just be sure to let freedom ring when you hit “play.”

Happy 4th of July to all our JaM fans–but especially the “J” in our JaM…Happy Birthday, John!

John, you deserve all the cheers, fireworks and celebrations in the world! May your birthday celebrations sparkle like a glass of Toast. Love from your JaMily xoxoxo

How To Sunday Funday the Butter Way

We’re rolling into sunny summer weather. And. We. Are. Here. For. It! This weekend we’ll be chillin’ the wine and heatin’ the grill, so we thought we’d share a few ways that our JaMily likes to celebrate summer #SundayFunday’s in style. 

Here are a few of our favorite ways to make your next #SundayFunday just a little bit…well,  Butter!

Our Favorite Ways to Sunday Funday:

Start with Sunday Brunch

Whether it’s breakfast-in-bed or brunch with your besties, no #SundayFunday is complete without an epic Sunday Brunch–even Butter if there’s a sparkling glass of #ButterBubbles next to the heaping pile of waffles. 

(Check out our list of JaM wines and brunch pairings for your #SundayFunday.) 

​​Level-up your spring picnics, Sunday Funday brunches and everything in between by bringing along the perfect JaM wines–from delicious Butter Chardonnay to easy-to-love Butter Bubbles, there will be something for all your besties at the brunch table.

Play in the Sprinkler 

Who said the backyard sprinkler was just for kids?? Certainly not us. Throw on your itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini, grab a bottle of delicious Butter Bubbles, crank the “Summer Festival JaM’s” poured by JaMCellars on iHeart radio and go play in the sprinkler like the good old days. 

Keep the Summer JaMs flowing for all your besties this #SundayFunday and have your summer sippers delivered straight to your door in 60 minutes or less, so you can spend more time sippin!

Host a Spa Day

Pick out your favorite buttery-yellow nail polish, pour yourself a glass of Butter Bubbles and spend a little time this #SundayFunday giving yourself the mani/pedi of your dreams. You can even invite a few gal pals over and give each other fun nail designs, and lather on the gooey face masks while sippin on your favorite JaM Cellars wines.  

The creamy, Peachy-Queen Sugar-tini is perfect for a little royal treatment with the besties, so make sure to order a few extra bottles of Sugar Sweet White on Instacart, Amazon Fresh and Drizly before your Sunday Funday spa day. 

We’d love to see your wine and face mask pics! Tag us @JaMCellars #JaMCellars so we can see how you #SundayFunday!

Wine & Yoga in the Park

Yoga class? Sorry, we thought you said “wine glass”...

Wine not nama-stay in the sun with your besties this Sunday Funday–weather permitting, of course. Grab your yoga mat and a delicious bottle of Butter as a reward after your final “ommm” and take some time this weekend to enjoy the finer things in life. 

Organize a Movie Marathon

Wine down the perfect Sunday Funday with a cozy movie-and-wine marathon, 

Let the gals take turns picking out their favorite movie, and scrounge up all the blankets and pillows you can find to make it uber-cozy. Spice up your movie marathon by adding a theme, like movies from the 80’s, scary movies, wine-themed movies, cheesy rom-coms, or movies that start with a “B” (for Butter, duh). 

Make sure to chill the #ButterCans ahead of time, and get creative with the popcorn selection. And yes: talking IS allowed in this theater.

#SundayFunday with JaM Cellars 

Hopefully this list gets you pumped up for your next Sunday Funday extravaganza. But, if you’re still looking for some more ideas, sign up for The Scoop and follow @JaMCellars on Instagram for all the #SundayFunday inspo you’ll need.

And don’t forget: life’s too short to drink anything but Butter! We can make all your #SundayFundays a little bit Butter by delivering ice cold JaM Cellars wine straight to your door in under 60 minutes (or less!) with Instacart, Amazon Fresh and Drizly. Three cheers for easy + fun Sundays!

Make sure to snap some pics for the ‘gram this Sunday Funday and share them with us over at @JaMCellars #JaMCellars #SundayFunday

That's A Wrap On BottleRock Napa Valley 2022!

We came, we sipped, we BOTTLEROCKED! From JaMSessions at the JaMpad to the endless flow of liquid sunshine #ButterChardonnay, BottleRock Napa Valley 2022 was THE best way to enjoy our first sips of summer! 

Here’s a quick recap:

JaM Cellars Main Stage

The JaM Cellars main stage was popping off all weekend, especially when Metallica, Twenty One Pilots, and P!nk took center stage. Some of us even found a patch of grass and called it home for most of the day, soaking up the sun n’ sips… EPIC moment? How about P!nk flying over the crowd?! IYKYK! 

JaMPad JaMSessions

If you’ve JaM'ed with us before you’ll know, there’s no party like a JaMPad party! BottleRock’s official 5th stage (and our very own acoustic stage and VIP lounge!) was definitely a highlight of the fest. The JaMPad JaMSessions were THE spot to BottleRock like stars. We even got to dance our booties off to Michael Franti at the JaMPad until the sun went down. Most memorable moment? Can you SWOON any harder over Ron Artis II’s daughters taking center stage to sing chorus!?  

Re-live these memories!! Tune in on our YouTube anytime to rewatch the LIVE JaMSessions from the JaMPad at BottleRock. 

Butter Cab-ana

​​After we danced til we dropped, JaMFans got a chance to regroup at the brand NEW Butter Cab-ana. 

Our JaMbassadors poured plenty of Butter Cab and Butter Bubbles in between selfie sessions at the Butter Cab-ana photo booth. (If you went to the Butter Cab-ana but didn't take a selfie...did it even happen?) Also, festival-goers got to hang out with us for LIVE meet-and-greets with BottleRock artists at 5pm every day (Justus Bennetts, Ron Artis II, and Wild Rivers). Yes, we got the hookup…

Full JaM Cellars Lineup 

BottleRock was totally better with Butter!

Our headliners: Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet, Toast Sparkling and Sugar Sweet White were pouring all throughout the festival at concessions stands and the JaMPad.

Experience Everything JaM Cellars Has to Offer This Summer!

Summertime is officially here, which means it’s time to get sippin’! Here are a few ways to JaM with us–all month long:

Stop by Our Wine & Music Studio in Downtown Napa

As the gorgeous Napa Valley vineyards are starting to pop, so is the JaM Cellars wine & music studio! Drop by and taste your way through our full lineup of delicious wines–including Butter Chardonnay, ButterCans, Butter Cab, Butter Bubbles, JaM Cabernet, Toast Sparkling, and Sugar Sweet White–in our sun-soaked music studio. 

Sip outside and soak up the California sun, or get cozy with your besties in a booth–whatever the mood, we’ve got you covered. Add on a cheese board to really get that “Napa” wine experience. 

Butter yet, make it a lunch! Enjoy a wine tasting and lunch from Tarla, our gourmet Mediterranean neighbors. They have everything from greek salads to lamb burgers–which make the perfect addition to a bottle of Butter Cab or Butter Chardonnay if we do say so ourselves….

Don’t forget to join us for a “Toast with Toast Sparkling” every day at 5:15pm, and enjoy a complimentary splash poured by your favorite JaMbassadors.    

Join us for LIVE JaMSessions

Come kick it with your cutie (or bestie!) and experience LIVE music in downtown Napa, Thursdays from 8-10:00pm and Friday/Saturdays from 9-11:00pm. 

Sip on live sets from:

Eric Wiley Project on Friday, May 13th, from 9pm - 11pm
Matt Bolton on Thursday, May 19th, from 8pm - 10pm
Wayward Blues on Thursday, May 26th, from 8pm - 10pm
(You might even get lucky and see one of the BottleRock headliners stop by and play us a buttery-smooth set!)

Check the JaMSessions listings here and make a reservation to make sure you don’t miss a beat.

Can’t make it to Napa for our in-person JaMSessions? Get a sip of JaMSessions wherever you are with our virtual JaMHappyHours on FB LIVE Live and the JaMHappyHour podcast! Just make sure your glasses are full with plenty of wine to cheer with.

BottleRock Napa

Proudly presenting BottleRock for our 6th year, we’re thrilled to invite you to get your first sip of summer with us! 

If you haven’t heard, BottleRock is back and better than ever–with headliners like Metallica, P!nk, Twenty One Pilots, and Luke Combs. This 3-day music, wine, food, and brew festival in Napa is the place to be, and we don’t want you to miss it. Make sure you're signed up for our monthly newsletter The Scoop and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for updates, ticket giveaways, and BottleRock announcements.

Heads up! JaM Cellars wine and music studio in downtown Napa will be closed during the festival weekend (Friday, May 27-Monday, May 30), so join us at the JaMPad lounge and stage or the NEW Butter Cab-ana rockstar photo booth experience.

See you soon, JaMFans!

Butter Get Packing For BottleRock 2022

Butter Get Packing For BottleRock 2022

This isn’t our first rodeo! We’ve done our share of packing for music festivals and would like to give you our top tips for an easy-to-love weekend. Mainly, what you should (and shouldn’t) be packing for all upcoming sipping & JaMming shenanigans. You have more important things to do as you prep for the weekend, so sip back and relax. 

Below, we’ve rounded up a few “must-haves” for an epic, comfy, rockstar-worthy festival experience!

1.  Beach Blanket or Yoga Mat

We know you’re going to be dancing ‘til you drop. Make sure to pack a bright yellow (easy to find!) beach blanket or yoga mat so you have a cushy place to land when it’s time for a ButterBreak in the shade. You’ll be glad to chill on a whim when the mood strikes!

2. Crossbody or Fanny Pack

News flash! All bags brought onto the festival grounds must be 12x12x6” or less…Forget dragging a big ol’ purse all over, keep your essentials in a super cute holographic crossbody like this one. OR Consider this adorable yellow fanny pack or trendy yellow crossbody. Security-friendly AND keeps you cute while cruising through the entry gates?! You’re VIP status already! 

3. Reusable Water Bottle

Stay hydrated, BottleRockers and festie besties!! Here’s a helpful reminder to sip plenty of water between glasses of Butter. 

Reusable water bottles (up to 1L) are invited to the party, and so are these foldable yellow water bottles! All bottles must be empty when you enter the gates, then fill ‘em up and sip ‘em down at the water stations found throughout BottleRock. Good for the planet? Check. Will keep you hydrated? Double-check!

4. Sunglasses and Hats

This BottleRock, throw some shade…the good kind! 

Trends may come and go, but good sense never goes out of style. Don’t forget to pack a pair of sunglasses and a hat (or two) to provide a little shade from the dazzling California sun.

5. Face Wipes and Sunscreen

The cardinal sin of music festivals: slacking on skin protection! 

Keep your bronze, ditch the burn. Add a mini sunscreen and a pack of refreshing face wipes to your list. Dancing is hard work and your skin might be craving a cleanse. Face wipes will come in handy for those between-show-touch-ups.  Don’t forget to reapply the sunscreen! 

*Aerosol sunscreen is not allowed inside BottleRock, so grab a smaller bottle of your favorite sunblock and throw it in your fanny pack for those midday rays. 

6. Tame Your Mane

Keep your head bobbing and hair rocking. Pack a few headbands, hair clips, scarves or bandanas to tame your unruly mane and save time for more sipping and less straightening. 

Rely on the help of your festival-ready hair accessories to tame your tresses when the dancing starts. Also, consider packing a mini container of dry shampoo powder to make sure your beautiful locks stay fresh no matter how much rocking happens. 

7. Hand Sanitizer

This one probably goes without saying, but you’ll def want to remember a bottle of hand sanitizer. Soap can be hard to come by, and it’s never a bad thing to be extra cootie-free! More high-fives, please! 

8. Portable Phone Charger

No one likes the “low battery” during a music festival–especially when you're in the middle of the silent disco not knowing where your festie bestie is. Pack a portable phone charger to keep your phone alive and your crew connected. Back up plan: meet at the Butter Cab-ana! 

Forgot to pack something for your BottleRockin’ weekend? No worries! There will be an onsite general store for all things fashion, festival and fun! They’ll have things like gum, lip balm, over-the-counter meds, etc…. Thanks for thinking of basically everything, BottleRock!

What to Know Before You Go:

While you’re prepping and packing for BottleRock weekend, JaM out to our “Summer Festival JaMs” playlist, poured by JaM Cellars on iHeartRadio

Don’t get caught with bad internet; get ahead of the game by downloading the festival app before you arrive. View the full lineups, check the schedules, and figure out where you want to be, and when. (Hint hint: you’ll definitely want to stop by the JaMPad and Butter Cab-ana for a very VIP experience!) 

Make sure you’re following us on @JaMCellars FB, Twitter and Insta for live festival updates, especially if you’re unable to make it in person this year. Snap your Butter-sippin’ #selfies and tag #JaMCellars on IG for a chance to get your own ‘grams reshared on the big screens! See you there, JaMFans!
