As the proprietor of Jackson Family Wines, Julia Jackson has made a name for herself in the wine industry. Jackson Family Wines was founded in 1982 by Jess Jackson, Julia’s father. The business is entirely family-owned and operated and known for its commitment to superior wine quality and social responsibility. Jackson Family Wines produces various brands of wine including Anakota, Cambria, Lokoya, Edmeades and Carmel Road among many others.
Having helped out at Jackson family wineries since her childhood, Julia Jackson has had a lifelong interest in the wine industry. She graduated from Stanford Graduate School of Business and spent a summer in France learning the French style of winemaking. In 2010 she became the proprietor at the family business. Julia works alongside an international sales team to help introduce Jackson Family Wines to a new generation of wine drinkers around the world.
While Jackson Family Wines produces dozens of brands of wine all over the world, Julia sees one particular brand as a standout from their Sonoma winery. Featuring three annual releases, the Verite range is the brand that Julia believes to be one of the best in Sonoma. With a Cabernet dominant Bordeaux blend, a Merlot dominant and a Cabernet Franc dominant, the Verite range has earned a perfect score of 100 points from wine critic Robert Parker on nine occasions.
When not working with Jackson Family Wines, Julia Jackson focuses on the non-profit organization she founded called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. The organization honors women who have overcome adversity and inspire others in their community. Every year Cambria Seeds of Empowerment awards $100,000 in cash grants to programs that uphold their pillars of community, spirit and equality.
