Julia Jackson is the middle daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, founders of the Kendall-Jackson Estates wine empire. Even though she was born into the world of wine, she showed an interest in the business at an early age. She attended Scrips College, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art. She then received a certificate from Stanford’s Summer Institute of General Management. As a child, she was able to learn French from a staff member’s daughter whom she played with during the summer. Now at the age of 24 and fluent in another language, she is fully immersed in the family business and works with the international sales team, located in Australia, Chile, France, Italy and S. Africa marketing to a new generation of wine consumers worldwide.
Julia Jackson is also very passionate towards “Cambria Seeds of Empowerment” a program that honors women who have hurtled over some of life’s most challenging difficulties and who motivates others to do the same in their own communities. They also reward $100,000 annually to non-profit organizations that support their mission of women as leaders and are champions of community, equality, and empowerment.
Concerned with the next generation of wine drinkers, Cambria Estate Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir was named wine of the year in 2010. Julia Jackson strongly believes that Cambria Estate and the Jackson Family Wines will be staying with the tried and true by not indulging into the short term trends that other vineyards promote to compete for the wine buying habits of the Millennials.
Most of the company’s primary revenue are attributed the Kendall-Jackson wines, with La Crema’s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as a strong second along with KJ’s Vintners Reserve contributes to the Jackson family wines success across the United States and around the world.
