Julia Jackson is Embracing the Future of Jackson Family Wines

Julia Jackson is the daughter of wine world celebrity Jess Jackson and the behind the scenes brain of the operation, Barbara Banke. She has been involved in the family business since she was a young girl picking grapes next to her father. Following her younger years working in the vineyards, Jackson departed to attend Scripps College. But upon graduation, she was soon back to the work of the family winemaking business. Julia even has a vineyard named after her, Julia’s Vineyard that her parents planted when she was born. To say that she was born into the wine business would be a huge understatement.

Most recently, Julia has taken on the role of spokesperson for Jackson Family Wines and is very enthusiastic about her work. Her dedication to the winemaking craft shows through in many ways. She has also been instrumental in bringing the Cabernet grape to the Sonoma area. This varietal is every bit as good as the Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays for which the region is noted. In fact, the Cabernet-heavy Bourdeaux blend, La Joie, has been a huge hit. Julia is a fierce advocate of the introduction of this grape to the region, and it appears that many others are starting to follow her lead.

Jackson has also founded a charitable organization called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment for which she is very proud. This organization works with other nonprofit groups to empower women in the workplace all over the world. It is with this work that Jackson honors her mother’s strength and the example that she has always shown to Julia. Barbara is a very successful woman in a male-dominated field and has always worked through the many challenges presented by this fact with grace and dignity. Julia is constantly inspired by her mother, professionally and personally.
