Born in 1988, in San Francisco, California, Julia Jackson’s parents are Barbara Banks and the late Jess Jackson, the founder and owner of Jackson Family Wines. One of their wines is the popular Cabernet Sauvignon from Helena Dakota.
After earning her education, Jackson has been a proprietor of her family’s business. She works with the international sales team of her family’s business to introduce their wines globally to a new generation of wine tasters. This has been going on since September 2010.
Before this role, she earned a certificate in general management in 2010 from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She also earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in studio art from the Scripps College in 2010.
Sometimes, Jackson will visit and talk on behalf of Jackson Family Wines and the wine industry as a whole. She stated in a recent article that Cabernet is best for Sonoma, even though Sonoma is known for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. She also stated in one of her visits, like her recent visit to Illinois, that she is involved in a non-profit organization called the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment in which she also found in 2014. This is a program that praises warrior women who’ve overcame life’s struggles and are inspiring others to do the same in their communities. This program also gives a yearly cash grant worth $100,000 to nonprofits which are embodying equality, spirit, and community which are all the pillars of the program.
