Julia Jackson grew up around wine. Jackson Family Wines started in 1974 when Jess Jackson bought an 80-acre plot for grapes. It has been in the family and since expanded over the years. Julia was brought up around this business and wants to keep it in the family.
Following her calling to help in the family business, Julia went to Stanford Summer Institute of General Management. Julia also started up a non-profit organization inspired by her hard working mom called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. The organization is all about helping empower girls and women.
Julia believes Sonoma offers the best Cabernet in California. Anakota is a wine produced by the Jackson Family Vineyards. That brand has two Cabernet Sauvignons from Knights Valley located in Sonoma County.
She had such a passion for wine, she learned French and even traveled to France to learn the ways of French wine making and wine sales. She is now the Public Relations person for her family business as well as deep into the marketing area. Julia has traveled internationally to meet with salespeople and distributors for the wine.
Growing up around wine inspired the career choice of Julia Jackson. Her family’s business has become very successful and will continue its success with Julia’s passion for business, wine, and learning.
