Sip, smile and unwine-d...
As the #1 Mom-approved chardonnay, we are here to make sure your munchkins are Butter’ing you up for your special day. So, all you Moms out there just sit back and pass this “Top 10 Honey-Do” list along to your family for a blissful Mother’s Day. Wine-not? You deserve it.
If you love her, let her sleep. And when she wakes around noon o’clock, make sure she’s not the one moving mountains of laundry. The only thing Mommy loves more than waking up to a clean house? Waking up to a Toast-mosa in bed!
Breakfast in bed. It’s a Mother’s Day classic for a reason. Tell the husband, kids, family (really anyone will do!) to whip up this go-to recipe for a waffle feast, squeeze some fresh OJ for that Toast-mosa and bring up a tray to let Mom soak in every moment of zen time.
Petal Power. Some guidance here to help your little ray of sunshine pick out the perfect bouquet for you and even some DIY arranging tips. And yes, of course you should still get wine with your blooms. Obvs.
Money what? There’s no guilt for Mom today, no checking credit card alerts, and no buyer’s remorse, either. She’s your Mom, she deserves this [insert designer name here…]
Chore-free day (or week?) The house is all picked up, laundry put away, ironing done (does anyone actually iron anymore?), dishwasher emptied and the fridge is fully stocked for her…with Butter of course.
Time for gifts! Pick out the best gift for every type of Mom, or make memories with a virtual work out class, learn to cook something new, or even book a wine and paint night together…just don’t forget the one thing she HAS to have…plenty of Butter! Ship it right to her door to maximize her wine time.
How well do you REALLY know Mom? Time to get real-real and ask your Mom all the questions you’ve never thought to ask! Watch Leah and her mom, Bella, dig in, get real and belly laugh over Butter. Your turn now with this great list of questions to ask your mom.
Wine + Dinner = Winner. About 364 days a year, we’ve got Mom to thank for something delicious on the table. Today, pour Mom a glass of creamy-licious Butter Chardonnay and let her kick back while you peel, chop and sauté your way to the best dinner she’s ever had (because she didn’t have to make it!)
Cheers to all those hardworking Moms out there making life Butter with every moment. We appreciate you!!
If your idea of a balanced diet is a glass of wine in one hand and chocolate in the other…join our JaMily. We’re celebrating National Chocolate Chip Day on May 15th with our favorite wines and these chocolate dishes. It’s an official holiday…you have full permission to wine and chocolate to your hearts desire!
Trevor, Social Media: Slutty Brownies
Inappropriate but you're got to love it. #SorryNotSorry. Long story short: pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough on the bottom; Oreo cookies in the middle; rich, chocolatey brownie batter on top. Bake into one sinfully sweet dessert. Plot twist—swap out the middle layer of Oreos for anything: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, York Peppermint Patties, Rolos, Marshmallows. The possibilities are endless! Depending on my filling, I’m either sipping JaM Cab, or Sugar Sweet White with these.
Coco, Wine and Music Studio: Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love cookies. No, seriously LOVE cookies! I nearly lost my mind when I found this fabulous recipe for my gluten-free gal pal using almond flour instead of regular flour. You absolutely cannot tell, so now this is my new go-to for all my cookies and they are beyond delicious with a glass of bubbly Toast Sparkling. I make these a lot—did I mention how much I LOVE cookies…and wine?
Sarah, Marketing: Double Chocolate Chili
I’m a savory and sweet girl and to me this deep, rich chili with two types of chocolate warms me up from the outside in when it’s damp and chilly (get it?😂). I’m definitely opening JaM Cab to go with this and if I’m feeling generous I might spare a splash or two for the chili.
Ashley, Marketing: Seven Layer Ooey-Gooey Cookie Bars
I never missed a Holiday without baking Seven Layer bars with my grandma. The smell brings back all the great memories of being a kid—and I still am… at heart. My grandma’s recipe is a family secret—hand written on a notecard with her beautiful cursive writing, but you can find a similar recipe here. And yes, the Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk is mandatory, alongside a glass of JaM Cabernet, which is like adding a yummy wine cherry on top!
Emily, Media: Chocolatey Pumpkin Spice Bread
This is my go-to for when the autumn chill starts to set in! I’ve been making it for years and have adapted it into my own. The sweetness of the chocolate adds the perfect balance to the spice of the pumpkin loaf, and really completes the ultimate comfy vibes when combined with my favorite movie, a fireplace and a dark fruity glass of JaM Cab!
15 oz pumpkin puree
1 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cups water
3 cups sugar
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cloves
3/4 bag of milk chocolate chips
Grease 2 9x5 inch loaf pans
Mix pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar in a large bowl until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients. Combine, and add in chocolate chips and pour evenly between the loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, toothpick should come out clean.
Optional: Whisk 3 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp cinnamon and top bread
Greg, Content: One Bowl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
I tend to buy more bananas than I can reasonably eat, so I just store the overripe ones in the freezer and wait for the right time to make banana bread. The recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, so you might as well double it and have some on hand for snacking during the bake, washed down with some creamy chilled Butter of course. Enjoy! *Pro tip: remove the banana peels before freezing.
Enjoy the chocolatey melting, stirring, baking and slicing—with a glass of yummy JaM Cellars wine in the other hand…for balance!
It’s finally pool season and time to wine-down for summer! First, gather your poolside essentials: ButterCan coozies, beach blankets, floaties, and the best splash-proof speakers. The perfect playlist?! Don’t even stress…we’ve done the legwork to put together a poolside playlist that’s as chill as your Govino of Butter Chardonnay, now on Spotify!
Just Sip’n’Click HERE To Play!
Are you READY?....
Set The Scene: It’s WineOClock (LINK) when you say it is, invite your bubble of besties over and set up the perfect patio: lounge chairs, cushions, and the icebox filled with ButterCans within reach
Chill out: Let our playlist inspire you to lay your sun-kissed head back on your beach blanket with that sense of “it doesn’t get Butter than this”!
Make poolside sipping even Butter and have your favorite JaM Cellars wines delivered chilled right to your door! Order up a bottle with some snacks courtesy of Instacart or Amazon Fresh delivery. Now where did we put that Cabana Boy….?
We don’t know about you, but we’re ready to make our days a whole lot Butter! We’re ready to trade out Zoom meetings, at-home schooling, online work outs (and let’s be real…at-home and online everything), for the outdoors, warmer days, lighter evenings, me-time, fun with friends…IRL with Butter Chardonnay!
Make a Zoom-free wine space: It’s been fun Zoom, but working, teaching and working out from home is getting old and taking up way too many sqft. Dedicate a decluttered, wine sippin’ space to get comfy and chill with your glass of Butter or ButterCan. Oprah says these are the best silky PJ’s, so go on and slip into something a lil’ more comfy. Headed outside? Grab your favorite throw blanket and matching pillows. Or go all-out for a re-take on the 80’s bean bag MoonPod.
Cool It: Keep Butter on ice so it’s ready when you are. Organize fridge space for Butter with this ButterCan organizer, or an in-fridge rack for Butter bottles. Never enough room to keep all your Butter cold? Give it pride of place in its own yellow mini-fridge. Now we’re talking!
Drink up Butter-cup!: Design “your” dedicated wine cup that will keep other paws off your Butter. Or if you’re reaching for your ButterCan stash, get a matching coozie for you and your #ButterDay bestie.
Sunshine Is The Best Color: Now that spring forward has arrived, happy hour is no longer in the dark! Text your girlfriends for #WineOClock and kick it in the sunshine for an extra hour of happy!
Take It Outside: Grab your small group and set up a game of KanJam or Spikeball at your local park. Grab a few ButterCans in a cooler and a blanket and catch up with your besties with a little competitive spirit!
Sip and Snack: Pick a TikTok trending recipe to snack with your glass of Butter. That Smoked Queso Dip is calling our name… How about a little popcorn with that Butter? Mix up one of these 17 popcorn flavorings for a real treat.
With so many ways to make your day a #ButterDay you might need more Butter? We’re just a click away. You can always find us in the wine aisle here or click *add to cart* on Drizly and Instacart to keep Butter flowing.

Where the wines rock.
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?
