JaM Cellars Toast Brut
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
JaM is short for John and Michele Truchard, who both grew up in Napa wine families, were friends in high school, and eventually started dating while away at college. They came home to make wine and start a family, farming their own vineyards and have been crafting ultra-premium wines in the Napa Valley for over a decade. John and Michele (the “J” and “M” in JaM) launched JaM Cellars to make high-quality winemaking traditions accessible for everyone, creating memorable, easy-to-love wines that over deliver in deliciousness. Their names are on the bottles and their hearts are in these wines.
JaM Cellars is all about easy-to-love, everyday wines. JaM’s four wines – Butter Chardonnay, California Candy Dry Rosé, JaM Cabernet Sauvignon, and Toast Sparkling - are rich, bold and luscious, and live up to their names. Butter Chardonnay melts in your mouth, California Candy Dry Rosé is as fresh as it is delicious and leaves you wanting more, JaM Cabernet is berry-licious, and Toast sparkling is a celebration in the glass. These wines are meant to be enjoyed anytime - whether it’s a special occasion or everyday celebration.
California enjoys a long history and proven reputation as an admirable source of sparkling wines. Agoston Haraszthy, who established Buena Vista Winery in the mid 1850s, first attempted to make traditional method sparkling wine in California in the 1870s. Shortly thereafter Korbel followed, and with great success. Today domestic producers such as Schramsberg, Iron Horse and J. Wine Co remain at the forefront of the market.
Since the 1970s the state has consistently attracted the attention and investment of large and respected European and French-based firms who are responsible for Domaine Chandon, Mumm-Napa Valley, Roederer Estate and Domaine Carneros (Taittinger), to name a few. Anderson Valley and Carneros remain standout regions for top quality Pinot noir and Chardonnay for these.
