Jam Jar wines was an exhibitor at the Boston Wine Expo

Have you heard of Jam Jar Wines? At the Boston Wine Expo I came across an exhibitor with Jam Jar  wines last weekend. I picked up recipes from the exhibitor who said I could share them on our Wine Trail Traveler website. It was still morning and with so many wines to choose from, I wasn’t ready to start tasting wine. Unfortunately I did not make it back to the Jam Jar’s table Saturday afternoon and unfortunately the event was canceled on Sunday.

Luckily some of the wine shops in our region have Jam Jar wines available. So one of these days I will give Jam Jar wine a try. Jam Jar Wines only produces two wines: a red and a white.

Below are the recipes using Jam Jar wines.
