Julia Jackson is a familiar name in the wine and business industry. She was born to Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson and at a young age she developed a love for wine. Her love for wine developed when she helped to picked grapes for her Jackson Family Wines. Jackson Family Wines was founded in 1982 by her father Jess. The whole family, mother and siblings, was responsible for working with wine company. As she got older Julia made a number of choices that would shift her from being a grape picker to the face of the Jackson Family wine company.
Though Julia had an idea of what she wanted her career to become, she choose to further her education. She received a degree in art from the Scripps College, but that was not enough. She attended the Stanford School of business to prepare her for her family’s company.
After she finished with college, she went back to at Jackson Family Wine. Julia become more hands on and dedicated with the company. One could find her working about sixteen hours per day in order to gain knowledge about every part of the company. Working for 16 hours per day has helped Julia to become a skilled wine maker and business woman. Her enhancement of her wine connoisseur abilities lead her to naming Cabernet, grown in Sonoma county, as her favorite. Also, included in the Jackson Family Wines are the labels Anakota, Mt. Brave, and Zena Crown.
Though it may seem that the Jackson family business is Julia’s whole life, she dedicates some of her time to her non-profit organization called Seeds of Empowerment. Started in 2014, this organization is devoted to assisting women that are leaders and entrepreneurs around the world. Thanks to Julia this organization gives $100,000 to these groups of women, in hopes that they will help to create change around the world.
