Sip, smile and unwine-d...
JaM Cabernet is rich, lush and super smooth, but don’t feel like you have to stand on ceremony to open a bottle. We asked for some chilled out ways to enjoy JaM’s berry-licious goodness and these girls knocked it out of the park. Check it out here.
Sea Salt Secrets says bring on the BBQ but skip the table cloth (it’s only going to blow away anyway) and opt for paper plates and food served in foil.
Jaclyn Murphy suggests outdoor game night (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the larger than life game pieces!) and she thinks JaM goes great with LaMb! Or try Mary Makes Good’s backyard bonfire…with ooey gooey s’more’s? Yes, please!
Chilly versus chilled out? The Flavor Blender says don’t be afraid to spice things up and gives us these easy and exotic Indonesian meatballs that you can serve hot or cold.
I do deClaire has a brilliant tip: figure out exactly where in your house/yard your party guests are going to be, and focus on cleaning (and prepping) only those areas. Why have we never thought of this before?
Host your own casual Cabernet evening with JaM. Don’t forget to sip, smile and share #JaMCellars #ChillWithJaM
Come visit our home in downtown Napa. Order a flight of your favorite wines Butter, JaM and Toast, sip by the glass or bottle. Once you’re all settled in, turn up the tunes with your pick from our extensive list of classic rock and pop vinyl records, sink into our comfy couches and booths, order some food, and have another glass of wine (because wine not?!).

Have you ever looked back at your camera roll and wish you could go back and relive the memories all over again? Maybe from a weekend with your besties, sitting on the beach, or belly-laughing on the sofa?
That’s how we feel after our fun filled weekend in San Diego as the official wine of KAABOO Del Mar! Anyone reading this who went, THANK YOU for hanging out, showing us a great time and sharing the love for Butter Chardonnay!
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!
Ok, so the kids are headed back to school and nights are drawing in…but that doesn’t mean we have to pack up the patio set just yet. Shorter and slightly cooler evenings are made for chilling by the fire pit, or candlelight with a glass of JaM Cabernet. When the temps are still high, we’ll put our JaM Cab on ice—its berry flavors wrapped in vanilla softness will be perfectly rich and fresh to go with whatever’s on the grill.
Our only advice—keep it simple (who has time for menus and tablescapes anyway?) To help you on your way to a berry-licious, chilled-out evening with great wine, summer jams and friends (or just one special friend), we’ve put together a ready to go playlist. After all JaM is our kinda Cab! Cheers!
5. We love it with everything. Toast Sparkling complements foods all the way from sushi to sliders and back to benedicts. Toast with roasted salted truffle marcona almonds from one of our fave grocery stores is a ninja pairing move you can treasure for the rest of your life. (You’re welcome!)
4. Two words: Summer Berries. Toast loves the summer and its bounty of berries. We’ve been known to add a slice of strawberry or a raspberry to our glass of Toast for a little summer chic.
3. It’s the little things! Toast-ing is the perfect way to celebrate, well…everything you’re grateful for. For us that’s a straight hair day, the kids not fighting, hearing our favorite song on the radio (currently DNCE Cake by the Ocean – another great pairing with Toast BTW!), getting out that red wine stain (and sipping Toast instead to not risk it again!) and of course Thursdays a.k.a “Little Fridays” (or choose whatever your favorite day of the week is!).
2. You can’t beat the POP. Nothing says FUN like the pop of Toast’s cork! Seriously, it’s one of the happiest sounds on earth, we LOVE it! This picture of Michele is one of our all-time favorites and remember her telling us “I could do this all day!” Yes Michele, yes you can!
1. Reason. Who needs one? We’ll be Toasting to YOU all our JaMLovers…thank you for choosing our wines and sharing them with your loved ones. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and send us a message any time, we want to hear from you!
John and Michele are the Napa Valley Vintners behind JaM Cellars. They brought the tradition of great-quality winemaking together with their love of life, family and friends to make approachable wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. They made them easy-to-love, easy-to-choose and fun to drink. These are the wines that John and Michele share with the people they love, no matter the occasion and hope you will too. We caught them on camera a little bit at BottleRock …get to know them here (video will be posted soon) and they’re often at JaM Cellars, Napa too!
Our favorite memories start with sipping on Butter, JaM and Toast with friends while listening to our favorite bands…JaM Cellars is the place to get both! And now with 4th Fridays live-music JaMSessions, check out up and coming Bay-area bands we want to share with you.
Alt-rock band Abbot Kinney kicked us off in June with their laid back sound. They brought some friends and made some new ones too. Join us for the next 4th Friday JaMSession on July 22nd with Van Archer & The Address, frontmen James and Ste are a talented energetic duo from Dublin that John met on a visit there last year. They’ll be in Napa through the end of June and also playing a Porchfest after-party at JaM Cellars on July 31st at 6.30pm.
Can’t get to Napa this Summer? Plug in your iPod and check out our playlists with a glass of JaM while reading The Scoop! Sip, smile and JaM with us anytime!
JaM Cellars Napa, 1460 First Street Napa, CA 94559. Open Sunday-Wednesday 10am-10pm and until Midnight Thursday through Saturday.
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! Check it out here.
Apparently we started some crazy T-shirt envy with our giveaways at BottleRock and 4th of July. So we’re going to spark some more this month with a new way to win JaM goodies!

It goes by so fast, so we wanted to bring you our 12 must-do summer activities. So far, we’ve hit the road with our ButterBus Roadtrip playlist, rocked out at an outdoor music festival, hit the gym with our “I work out for Butter” playlist on Spotify (we all work out for something…for us it’s a lovely cold splash of Butter!), and went on an outdoor adventure (with Butter of course!)
