Julia Jackson, the middle daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, has had an interest in the wine industry since a tender age. Julia Jacksons’ family started the wine business even before she was born i.e. in 1982. The talented lady was born in San Francisco, California in 1988. The interest came along as she grew up in the wine fields and her father would make her and her siblings pick and sort grapes at 100 degrees weather while he explained the significance of work hard.
Julia Jackson is currently the Spokesperson of Jackson Family Wines since September 2010, and she is also Co-Founder of Rex Apps. The non-profit organization that Julia Jackson works with is called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment which she founded in 2014. Cambria Seeds is a program that recognizes women who are warriors by overcoming life’s hardships and are motivating other ladies in their communities to follow suit.
She attended Scripps College from 2006 to 2010 where she was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts degree. After College, Jess Jackson told Julia to go to France and learn how to make wine. It is at this time when she was awarded a certificate in General Management by Stanford Graduate School of Business.
After the launch of the vintage of Vérité in 2012 which is the company’s flagship Sonoma County wine by Jackson’s family, Julia Jackson argued that Sonoma’s Vérité consistently has been rated as the best wine in Sonoma. She adds that the wine brand, which has three annual releases –La Muse (which is Merlot dominant) La Joie (a Cabernet dominant Bordeaux blend), and Le Désir (which is Cabernet Franc dominant) – has gained 100 points by wine critic Robert Parker as many as nine times. Another famous brand that the Jackson Family Wines produces is Oregon wine.
