Julia Jackson is currently a successful proprietor of Jackson Family Wines. However, her interest in wine has been with her throughout most of her life. She has fond memories with her father, picking and sorting grapes and learning about the wine business, where she learned the importance of working hard. Since her child-hood years, she has taken that philosophy to heart, attending Scripps College and obtaining her bachelor’s degree before attending Stanford School of Business to pursue her graduate degree. After studying about French sales and distribution, working during the harvest at the Jackson Family Château Lassègue in France, she was inspired to be involved with international wine brands.
She currently works in the Jackson Family Communications and Marketing Departments where she improves websites for Jackson Family Wines’ brands such as Tenuta di Arceno, and Yangarra. With her success with Jackson Family Wines, she was inspired to create a non-profit organization, that celebrates women leaders who overcome life’s adversities, called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. Each year, her organization donates $100,000 annually to other non-profit organizations that exemplify strong traits of equality, community and spirit. As she moves forward in her career, she hopes to honor her father’s legacy by improving her family’s wine business making quality products and continuing her contributions to her valuable non-profit organization.
