Sip, smile and unwine-d...
Like a good neighbor, JaM is to share!
Level-up your neighbor skills by keeping spirits high in your 'hood, and wine glasses full with random gift baskets of wine-ness. Here are our tips for how-to!
Step 1: Start with Butter
Step 2: Add The Fixin’s
Get creative with your goodies! A few ideas include…
→ A GoVino wine cup or yellow straws so you can sip during those socially-distant neighborhood walks (gotta get those steps in!)
→ Cheese and crackers (because what is a happy hour without snacks on snacks!)
→ A puzzle, deck of cards, or your fav book that could use a new home (for entertainment beyond screen time)
Step 3: Butter has landed!
The tough part is choosing who to Butter up with wine-ness. The Mom next door, homeschooling her 3 kids? The grocery clerk across the way who’s up at 6am daily to make sure your fridge gets filled? The delivery guy down the street after a long day on the road? Plus any and all of our front-line healthcare workers in pharmacies, clinics and medical facilities…OK, we’re gonna need more baskets and Butter.
Ready? Set it on their doorstep, ring the bell, step back and smile when they come to the door—they’ve been Butter’d! It’s like a Ding-Dong-Ditch, but socially acceptable AND socially distant! For more warm and fuzzies, add this fun note and tag #RandomActsofButter with pictures of your Butter baskets…
We’re Butter together (although 6 feet apart!)
Here’s a treat to keep things upbeat and show some heart.
You’re doing great and deserve some wine-ness,
Sip, smile, and share this moment of kindness."
Now go out and spread kindness like #Butter!
You know we love sipping wine on days that end in a “y”, but on a day nationally recognized as #NationalDrinkWineDay (Thursday, 18th of February), we’re pouring it the royal treatment! Here’s how to celebrate one of our all-time fav holidays…
Virtual Wine Tasting
Get in girls, we’re going wine tasting—from your sofa! We’re bringing the JaM Cellars wine and music studio right to your living room.
A JaMbassador will give you a virtual tour of our tasting room in downtown Napa and host you on a tasting of our delicious, easy-to-love wines! Pick at least three of your fav JaMCellars wines (try a side-by-side of California and Napa Valley Butter Chardonnays and JaM Cabs?), invite your friends, and we’ll take care of the rest! Book your tasting here.
Give the Gift of Butter
All the best holidays involve gifting…
Shop ‘n ship bottles and JaM Cellars merch right from the JaMStore (and score shipping discounts on 12+ bottles!)
Stir Up a Wine Cocktail
Any time is Wine O’clock on #NationalDrinkWineDay! Mix up something extra special like this Raspbubbly Toast-tini, The Peachy-Queen, or SugarBerri Wine Cocktail made with Sugar Sweet Wine. There is always a fun way to treat yourself and sometimes a babe just needs a cocktail!
Get An Hour of Happy
If you haven’t joined us for JaMHappyHour yet, #NationalDrinkWineDay is the perfect day to JaM with us and a special musical guest. Jump in LIVE on Facebook or Youtube at 4pm for an hour of awesome tunes, fun (and sometimes crazy) stories, and of course yummy wines. Check out the show listings here.
Find your favorite bottle of JaM Cellars wines at your local retailer by using the handy dandy WineFinder, shop online at our JaMStore and get discounts on 12+ bottles, or get your goods delivered with your groceries through Instacart or Amazon Fresh.
Happy wine sippin', babes!
The Peach-Queen Sugar-tini
This creamy, peachy concoction with a touch of sweetness is perfect for a little royal treatment with the besties!
1.5oz of your favorite vanilla vodka
Top off with a splash of peach puree
Whipped cream and peach slice to garnish
Tastes as pretty as you look! Happy sipping, gals.
We’d love to see your reviews and pics, tag us @JaMCellars #JaMCellars
2021 is in full swing, but wait…not much has really changed yet?! Except perhaps for our outlook? Hope for a return to normal life, live music, sharing wine with others, and top of our wishlist—a weekend wine and music festival. Do you hear us BottleRock Napa Valley? We’re coming for you in 2021!
But while those things are still a few months away we’re getting in some happiness practice right now…with the Sunshine Journal “the complete and effective tool to happiness”. Bold, bright and in our favorite color, Butter yellow, it’s helping us make time for happy right now. And we have one to send to a lucky Butter lover… it could be YOU!
Imagine this: you’re pouring a glass of cool, creamy-licious glass of Butter Chardonnay, uncapping one of your favorite new pens, and committing to happiness with your very own Sunshine Journal. Here’s how…
Practice makes perfect—well actually in terms of happiness, almost perfect will do. The two Alices show you the way in their hit book “Be Happy Without Being Perfect” because YOU=ENOUGH. Journal for 5 mins or 55 mins, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is regular time for you to self-reflect, be grateful and chart a path to your goals and dreams.
Writing down your goals and dreams is the best way of making them a reality, and you happier!
Studies have shown that simply by feeling gratitude (and receiving it!) you begin to see things from a more positive perspective immediately. Can you think of one thing right this moment that you are grateful for? We’ll go first….it starts with a “B” and ends with “UTTER!”
So treat yourself to a glass of wine and a quiet room. If you think better with a little background soundtrack, we’ve got the perfect one for you right here “Summer Festival JaMs, poured by JaM Cellars” and dream of your happy place—sunshine, music and Butter Chardonnay.
We love wine, you love wine...did we just become best friends?!
Your besties are the ones who will always show up and sip with you through good times and bad, and Galentine’s Day is definitely the good! “Officially/unofficially” February 13th is the best day to celebrate the true loves of our lives and gift the perfect wine to your gal pals!
We have something for everyone in your crew:
Your outgoing, life-of-the-party friend will love: Butter Chardonnay
Your sultry, sexy and queen of the night-life friend will love: JaM Cab
Your kindest and most loving friend will love: Sugar Sweet White
Your brunch-loving, bubbly, and most excitable friend will love: Toast Sparkling
Still not sure which bottle they’d love? Text your Gal-pal group chat with the JaM Personality Quiz link and get everyone to post their answers so you always know what to grab on the way over to their house for girl’s night!
Celebrate together on the 13th Feb by:
Get inspired in the kitchen with an online cooking class.
Stock up on your fav JaM Cellars wines and book a virtual JaM Cellars wine tasting that you can do together or remote.
SIP and sip at home with the girls on a Virtual Spa Day: Stock up on Butter, create a fun self-care playlist, order at-home mani-pedi kits, lather up a face mask (and don’t forget to snap a group selfie!)
Cheers to celebrating all the wonderful women in our lives with wine.
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!
Every final Friday of each month, we will be drinking and JaMming for a good cause in partnership with Sweet Relief Musician’s Fund. Sweet Relief is a fund dedicated to helping musicians and music industry pros in need, in response to COVID-19’s impact on the live entertainment industry. With your help, we will be able to help hundreds of artists who are struggling—all while having a blast and drinking wine. Now that is music to our ears!
Check the “Final Friday” dates on our virtual live music calendar here and tune in for cheers, applause, and some seriously rockin’ tunes. JaM Cellars has committed to donate $1 for every click, like and share made during the show, up to $2500 per show, and up to $25,000 through 2021. Last month alone, we raised $4,145 during our show with Mondo Cozmo!
Join us @ 4PM PST on the final Friday of each month on Facebook Live or over on our Youtube channel to tune in and turn up the applause for these amazing artists dedicated to keeping our souls filled with sweet, sweet music. This month, tune in to rock on with special guest, Magic Giant! Remember that time Magic Giant played the JaMPad at BottleRock Napa Valley and took their acoustic set into the audience? EPIC.
If you can’t make it to our JaMSession Final Fridays, you can still help out by shopping some awesome, limited-edition SWAG! Visit the JaM Cellars Merch Tent online to shop our super comfy, vintage wash tees, old-school pullovers and cozy sweaters, with 100% of proceeds going to Sweet Relief.
Tune in, Drink JaM, Give Back & Rock On!

A Toast to the New Year with Raspbubbly Toast-inis:
1/2 oz Chambord raspberry liqueur
3 dashes of Orange Blossom Water
Ice cold Toast Sparkling... chill it down!
Garnish with fresh raspberry
This recipe features our delicious bubbly wine, Toast Sparkling. It is a celebration in your glass any day of the year!
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and all through the house…the bubbles were chilling and so were we. That’s because we hacked our Christmas Day prep with these super simple tips!!
• Make one last trip to the store. Plan ahead for the things that ALWAYS surprise us; an extra bag of ice, a box of candies for unexpected gifts, and an extra bottle (or case) of Butter Chardonnay for when Aunt Janie arrives early to show you how to make cranberry sauce. And don’t forget cookies for Santa…
• Pre-chill bottles of Toast Sparkling. That extra bag of ice comes in handy here. There’s never enough room in the fridge, so stock Toast in an ice-chest on the back deck. You’ll want cold bubbles to kick-start your morning!
• Stream the Santa Tracker. Cozy up and tune into the Santa Tracker to see where in the world the Big Guy is heading…you’ve been nice, right!? Even if you haven’t, those cookies you bought and a glass of Butter might sway him into leaving you a gift, or two.
Stress less, and merry more!! Wishing you and yours a festive season, filled with warm hearts and full glasses!
