Julia Jackson, one of the proprietors of Jackson Family Wines, founder Jess Jackson’s youngest daughter. Julia’s interest in the wine industry started at an early age. In an interview, she fondly recalls picking and sorting grapes as a child. Julia’s long family history in the wine industry had begun before she was born. Julia’s exposure to the family business from a tender age made her passion and transition into the wine industry a natural fit.
As a youth, Julia befriended the daughter of a French-speaking winemaker who was employed by the company. As a result, Julia went on to study French and become very fluent in the language. This skill led to her teaching French while attending school. Julia attended and graduated from Scripps College with a BA and received her certification in general management from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
In 2015, Jackson Family Wines introduced their front-runner wine from Sonoma County. It is Julia’s belief that the best wine for Sonoma County was the Cabernet, although the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are typically more favored. Jackson Family Wines has an extensive catalog of wines including a wine called Acaibo from Trinite Este catalog and the Champ de Rêves’ Pinot Noir which is a dark and aromatic wine.
Julia is actively involved in many humanitarian pursuits. As one of the founders along with Katherine Jackson and Cambria Proprietors of Cambria Estates Winery, Julia Jackson divides her attention to work as their spokesperson. The non-profit organization’s primary focus is the empowerment of women. The Cambria Estates Winery pledged $ 100, 000 in November 2014 to celebrate outstanding women in the community and throughout society. The focus of the institution is to provide financial support to organizations dedicated to training and developing women who play a role in changing their communities.
