NAPA VALLEY (KCBS RADIO) - Meet Michele Truchard, the "M" in JaM Cellars and partner to husband John - yes the "J" in JaM Cellars.

JaM Cellars is the home of Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling and now California Candy. These four delicious, easy-to-love, everyday wines are made by second-generation Napa Valley Vintners and are among the most popular wines from the region.

JaM Cellars is the headline sponsor of BottleRock Napa Valley and yes, their wine will be the "jam" for many this Memorial weekend.

The visions of California Candy ran wild when they dreamt up the JaM Cellars Candy Cabana! Come with us on a magical journey with a mini-escape inside a magical wonderland filled with rainbows, glitter and did we mention a unicorn? All crafted for JaM fans just for this year’s BottleRock.

I met with the always vivacious Michele recently for our Foodie Chap chat at JaM Cellars in Napa. We sipped California Candy, we talked California Candy and sipped some more.

Enjoy our sweet talk about JaM Cellars’ latest vino creation.

Cheers and see you at BottleRock Napa Valley this Memorial weekend.

P.S. Look out for Live posts from the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage at BottleRock Napa Valley all weekend. It will be EPIC!!

WINE NOTES: 'Candy' by JaM Cellars

Inspired by the idea of attention-grabbing eye-candy, John & Michele chose to name their new rosé, California Candy. It's taken years to craft the perfect, delicious rosé blend of Syrah and Grenache, along with an eye-catching label that could live up to the name.

California Candy shimmers in the bottle is fresh and vibrant in the glass, and is so delicious…it’ll leave you wanting more. 

Perfect Summer day wine and pairs well too with salads & fish dishes.
