If there is one thing Julia Jackson of Jackson Family Wines knows how to do, it is to keep entrenched in the public eye. To start with, Jackson’s family has made winemaking their passion since before even Julia was born. It was a pedigree that was passed on to Julia early, as she has fond memories of sorting grapes on her parents’ properties as a young girl. Besides providing the best wine you have probably never even heard of, Jackson has stayed true to her roots and realizes the importance of giving back to her community.This is why she is involved in an important non-profit which she founded, called Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. After spearheading the movement in 2014, Jackson continues to be proud that the organization goes the extra mile to prop up “Warrior Women” who meet life’s obstacles and challenges with grace and dignity and continue to be pillars of their communities throughout. They aware cash grants for a variety of purposes to help these pillars of the communities.
Besides her current pursuits, Jackson also has fond memories of her college days at Scripps College where she obtained her bachelor’s degree and at Stanford University where she was the proud recipient of a Master’s of Business Administration. Julia has parlayed the skills acquired there to make the family business proud. As long as she is at the helm, Jackson Family Wines will continue to be a staple within the state of California.For a company as illustrious as Jackson Family Wines, there is actually many brands that have graced the company over the years. Perhaps the one they are the most proud of would be Edmeads. While it is not a brand originally credited to Jackson Family Wines (It was founded in 1984 and purchased by the Jackson family in 1988), this brand has exemplified the type of perfection and professionalism Julia Jackson expects her company to deliver day in and day out.
