THE JACKSON FAMILY WINE BUSINESS

Julia Jackson

Julia Jackson was born in San Francisco, California in the year 1988 as a daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. She joined Scripps College in 2006 up to the year 2010 where she graduated with a Bachelor of Art, in studio art. Julia later joined Stanford Summer Institute of General Management where she studied Summer Certificate in 2010.

At her tender age, Julia had began to grow interest in the wine business. She can still remember how her father would make kids pick and sort grapes while he explained to them the importance of working hard. Her father made sure they appreciated what it takes to be successful. During summer, after school, Julia worked at several family wineries. In the process, a lifelong bond was made with the daughter of one of the winemaker employed by the family and who could speak French. Their friendship led her into learning French, and she then began to love the culture to date. Being in France and learning the French art of wine-making was an important point in her life. Her eloquence in the language led her to teach French to the sixth-graders. Learn more about Julia at Crunchbase.

Wine empire

Cambria Estate Winery, which was established in 1987 by Jackson’s mother, together with the Jackson Family Wine is what led to her father’s success. Julia sees her mother as a role model because she runs the company. With the inspiration in 2014, Julia founded Cambria Seed of Empowerment, a program to celebrate warrior women who have overcome life’s hardships and are inspiring others in the community to do the same.

In 1982 when Jess Jackson produced his first Chardonnay, he wanted to create the wine that people of all levels could enjoy. Thirty years later, the family owned and operated Kendall-Jackson as the most trusted and celebrated wineries in the world. Kendall- Jackson owns more than 12,000 acres of the mountains, hillsides, and benches of California’s, coastal sub-regions throughout Sonoma, Napa, Monterey, and Mendocino counties.
