Julia Jackson grew up surrounded by grapes and vineyards and the world of wine. She is now the spokesperson for her family’s business, the ever-growing Jackson Family Wines. Julia recalls picking grapes with her father as she was growing up, and her parents even named a vineyard after her when she was born. After attending Scripps College to study Studio Arts, Julia has dedicated her professional life to the business of winemaking. In addition to her role as spokesperson, Jackson also oversees the charity that she founded, Cambria Seeds of Empowerment.
Julia has always believed in giving back to the community and through her hard work with Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, she is able to do so. It is Julia’s desire to empower young women to excel in the workplace no matter their background. Jackson believes that personal authenticity is a very important component of success. Inspired by her mother, Julia wanted to help other women who choose to pursue a professional life, especially those that may face challenges along the way.
The Jackson Family Wines company has always been known for its innovation and desire to discover new and exciting things in the world of wine. To this point, Julia Jackson has begun promoting the idea of introducing new grapes to different areas. Known for its Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, Sonoma has established itself as a successful and interesting wine region. It is Julia’s belief that Cabernets will also do exceedingly well in this area of the country. Cambria Estates has had some success there as well as Vérité La Joie, a Cabernet intensive wine created with the Bourdeaux process.
Julia Jackson has a lot going on in her life and is dedicated to her family, the winemaking business, and the many wonderful people that she meets through her charity.
