Jackson Family Wines have grown into one of the most premier winemaking producers in the world. This company was started back in the early 1980s by Jess Jackson, and his wife Barbara Banke. The couple, and their children worked together for the greater good, and the greater good was to produce high quality wine. The United States’ Pacific Northwest region provides the perfect growing habitat for grapes. Fortunately, this is where the family would lay their roots. The youngest daughter, Julia Jackson, is an important figure within the business. She does a little bit of everything, including redesigning the company’s website, producing intricate work of painting the labels on the bottles and sales. Julia has a B.A. in Studio Arts from Scripps College, and she has earned a certificate in General management from Stanford University.
One of her closest friends was a French girl, who was the daughter of an employee that worked for Jackson Family Wines. They would spend a lot of time together even when Julia went off to work in France. This is where Julia found her true passion for the winemaking business as she became entrenched into the vinification culture. Since she had gotten so good at speaking such a unique language, Julia went on as a teacher of sixth-grade French. Cambria Seeds of Empowerment is her very own organization, and this organization is all about female empowerment. Seeds of Empowerment donates $100,000 on an annual basis to local organizations in the area. Jackson Family Wines fall under the Cambria Estate Vineyard & Winery. One of its favorite wines is known as Pinot Noir (Clone 4). This beverage is spicy and fruity thanks to its myriad of tasty ingredients. Julia gets to promote the wines on a global scale thanks to being part or the international sales team.
