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.

Education

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.
