Julia Jackson

Julia Jackson who is part of the Jackson family wine company was born in 1988 in San Francisco, California. Growing up, her father would have them pick grapes and sort them in the hot sun. By doing this he taught them how to work hard and he also taught them the depths of what it takes to become successful. Julia’s father had been part of the wine business before she was born, but even though she grew up around wine making and had been around it her whole life, it still interested.

Julia later attended school at Scripps college where she majored in studio arts. She would work in the wineries owned by her family after school and in the Summer. Years later in 2010 she graduated from Scripps college with her Bachelors degree. She later pursued graduate studies at Stanford University.

In 2014 Julia became the founder of a program called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. This program is meant to celebrate women empowerment or as they like to say “Warrior Women.” She was inspired to push this program because of how hardworking her mother was. She admired the way her mother ran her father’s wine company. Seeds of Empowerment is a very successful now and awards $100,000 every year to nonprofit organizations.

Julia Jackson is also the proprietor of Jackson Family wines. She has followed her interest in the wine business and pushes to get her family’s wine company out there. She plays a very important role in continuing the family’s brand. One of the top brands that Jackson family wine produces is called Chardonnay. Chardonnay is not only one of their top Varietals, but it is well known in Sonoma. Julia believes Sonoma is the best place for Cabinet instead.
