When it comes to producing the best handmade wines, Jackson Family Wines does it just the right way. The family owned company has lived to achieve its goals under the leadership of Babra Banke who is the Chairman and Proprietor of the firm as well as the wife of Jess S. Jackson. It’s from her interest in wines that one of their daughters, Julia Jackson, took up her role as a proprietor in the marketing department of the firm. Julia holds a Bachelor of Arts from Scripps College where she graduated in 2010 and a certificate in General Management from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
While overseeing the UK launch of 102 Vintage of Vérité, Julia Jackson agrees with the company’s senior vice president, Nick Bevan, that Napa for cult Sonoma may be a good place for Cabernet. While she notes that Sonoma has a good standing for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, Vérité still continues to make good scores at the place through its annual releases of La Joie, La Muse as well as Le DéSir. For nine times now, the three releases have gained a smashing 100 points by Robert Parker who is a Wine Critic. The success comes as a great honor to the company according to Julia and this recognition came despite the fact Sonoma has fewer marketing resources as compared to Napa.
However, Julia who has been in the forefront in facilitating the growth of the company to Sonoma County, now focus on Cambria Estates Winery a non-profit organization where she serves as the spokesperson. The non-profit which was founded by Julia, Katherine and Cambria Proprietors seeks to empower women by honoring ‘Warrior Women.’ It’s through the institution that Julia and her team identify, trains and also empowers women who have been key in improving their communities. Further, the non-profit intends provides the much needed support to organizations that empower women.
