Jam Cellars is the wine brand from John Anthony Truchard and his wife, Michelle, out of the Napa Valley, California. The name is both a combination of the first names of the married winemakers, but also describes the overall style of the value-driven, fruity, some say almost “dessert-like” wines. Truchard is the son of Carneros wine pioneers Tony and JoAnn Truchard. John Anthony Truchard started Jam in 2003.– Description from Amanda Schuster

RBA, looks like a great trip, glad to see you're not wasting any time! By the way, are there any oysters left in VA?Trying to make some room in the wine fridge for the last of the fall shipments so I grabbed this bottle from the "have at it" shelf. This is one of the last of the gifted bottles from a neighbor that passed away a few years ago. Ha... Read More

I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits. And the taste?" regarding the... Read More

But that is not always true – depending on what we are looking for. Super light reds can give lots of red berry fruit intermixed with other herbaceous and/or spicy notes w... Read More

Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More
The beginning of Spring marks the beginning of several “seasons” as we are finally able to again start conducting many more activities outdoors. For me, it means being able to ride my bike on actual pavement, trying hard once again to avoid becoming “that parent” that yells at the Little League umpire for missing a call, and finding at least a c...
