Let’s Go JaMping! The Butter Guide to the Great Outdoors


Let’s Go JaMping! As we embrace National Great Outdoors Month and gear up for the Fourth of July, it’s time to elevate your camping experience with some mouthwatering food and wine pairings. We’ve got tips to make your time camping — or as we like to call it: JaMping — even BUTTER!

We’ve handpicked five delicious recipes to pair with our fabulous wines, making your outdoor adventures full of flavor and fun!

1. Peanut Butter S’mores and JaM Cabernet

We’re kicking off the list with a classic camping favorite: S’mores! But we’re adding a twist – peanut butter. Spread a generous layer of peanut butter on one graham cracker, top it with a roasted marshmallow and a piece of chocolate, and sandwich it with another graham cracker. 


The rich, velvety peanut butter complements the gooey marshmallow and chocolate, creating an irresistible treat.


Pair this indulgent delight with our JaM Cabernet for the ultimate camping dessert experience. The wine’s luscious dark fruit flavors and hints of vanilla perfectly balance the sweet and savory elements of the S’mores, making every bite (and sip) absolutely divine.

2. Butter Cab & BBQ

Nothing says camping quite like a delicious BBQ feast! And what goes better with BBQ than juicy Butter Cab?? Grill up some marinated chicken, juicy burgers, or succulent veggie skewers over the campfire for a mouthwatering meal. 


Butter Cab makes the perfect pairing for your BBQ adventure. Its smooth, rich, and fruity notes enhance the smoky and savory flavors of grilled meats and vegetables, creating a harmonious and satisfying combination that’s sure to impress.

3. Butter Bubbles and Campfire Breakfast

Start your day in the great outdoors with a scrumptious campfire breakfast. Whip up some fluffy pancakes, sizzle bacon or sausage, and scramble some eggs over the open flames. 


Elevate your morning meal by popping open a bottle of Butter Bubbles. The crisp, refreshing bubbles and notes of green apple and melon add a touch of elegance and playfulness to your breakfast, making it an unforgettable experience.

4. ButterCans and Trail Mix

When you’re on the go and exploring nature, you’ll need a portable, energy-packed snack to keep you fueled. Enter the perfect trail mix! Combine your favorite nuts, dried fruits, seeds, and maybe even some chocolate chips for a tasty and nutritious treat.


Take along convenient ButterCans to enjoy a chilled, refreshing sip of Butter Chardonnay while you munch on your trail mix. The wine’s creamy, buttery notes and hints of stone fruit and citrus complement the mix’s sweet and salty flavors, creating a delightful and energizing combo for your outdoor adventures.

5. Campfire Pizza and Sugar Sweet White

Who says you can’t enjoy pizza while camping? With a trusty cast-iron skillet, you can create a delicious, cheesy masterpiece in the great outdoors. Top your pizza with your favorite ingredients—think pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, or even some fresh basil.


Pair your campfire pizza with Sugar Sweet White for a heavenly match. The wine’s luscious tropical fruit flavors, balanced sweetness, and bright acidity cut through the richness of the pizza, leaving your palate refreshed and craving another slice (and another sip!).


So, there you have it, JaMFam—five fantastic food and wine pairings to elevate your camping experience this summer.
