Julia Jackson is Breathing New Life into the Family Wine Business

Julia Jackson, born in 1988, is the middle daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. Growing up, she consistently developed an interest in the wine business, probably because her family ran a wine business empire – Jackson Family Wineries. During the summer, she would work at the family wineries.

Julia was best friends with a French-speaking daughter of a winemaker employed by the family. The friendship resulted in her interest in the French language which she later took classes on. Thanks to her fluency in the language, she got a chance to teach the language to sixth-graders while in college. To date, French is still Julia’s passion.

Currently, she is part of the Jackson Family Wines international sales team whose mission is to attract the new generation of wine drinkers to the family wines.

Her mother has been an integral part of the business for the longest time. Julia Jackson established the Cambria Estate Winery in 1987. The Jacksons have a good understanding of the land; a factor that has contributed to their success in the wine industry.

With inspiration from her mother’s brilliance, Julia started Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, an initiative to recognize and appreciate ‘Warrior Women’ in the community. The program financially supports non-profit organizations that in line with the program’s pillars of Community, Equality, and Spirit.

According to Julia, the best wine for Sonoma County is the Cabernet wine. The county was used to the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. The family had launched Sonoma County Wine in the area, but it never got as famous as other county wines. Julia attributed this to lack of enough marketing resources. Moreover, a wine called Acabo from Tribute is gaining ground in the county.


In 2006, Julia joined Scripps College for a Bachelor of Arts degree. She attained a Certificate of General Management from Stanford Graduate School of Business.

George Soros is Back and Here to Stay

The American political landscape is undergoing massive, dramatic changes. The 2016 presidential election was something right out of the world of HBO. The rise of Donald Trump and his bizarre brand of ‘America First’ populism was captivating to watch but also frightening from another perspective. Trump tapped into an America that many people didn’t know, or didn’t want to know, could exist. All of that is to say that George Soros, a world renowned progressive and philanthropist, knew it was his time to return to the political fray. With Trump rising as a firebrand on the national stage, Soros knew that it was his duty to jump in and defend progressive values. Read this article at Washington Times.

George Soros most famously backed Al Gore back in 2004 during his election campaign against then-President George W. Bush. Gore would fall short but not before giving a platform and a voice to George Soros, not that the needed one. Soros came to America by ship after having fled Nazi-occupied Hungary some years prior. Soros would go on to start the most successful fund we can think of, the Soros Hedge Fund, and from there he would begin to become a catalyst for progressive change all around the country and eventually the world. Along the way Soros would gain a reputation as one of the few billionaires who proudly stood up for progressive values and that would make him enemy #1 to most conservatives and hard line right wing politicians.

Soros’ leaped into the 2016 election campaign with abandon, immediately donating nearly $25 million to democratic causes up and down the ticket — including that of the Clinton Campaign. Soros would donate a stunning $7 million to Hillary Clinton in order to help fuel her campaign. Though she would fall short Soros was still able to make an important announcement –he was back and ready to make a difference in the political world.

Soros has been accomplishing some major political work even from outside of the political machine over the decades. More than anything, Soros believes in fighting for the right of the people to make a difference in their own lives. That is why the Open Society Foundations has done so much to help fund grassroots activists in the United States and even abroad. Giving political power and capitol to the people is the surest way to ensure that democracy stays a vital part of the political world. Know more on about George Soros.

One particular place where Soros’ activist-first funding took root was in Ferguson, MO. George Soros had donated nearly $30 million in funding to activists and grassroots campaigns around the city and that came to light during the Ferguson Protests. Due to Soros’ donations the Ferguson Protests were able to bring in some real scrutiny on racial inequality amongst the Ferguson Police Department.
