Wine and Community Service Go Hand in Hand For Julia Jackson

If you want to know about wine, Julia Jackson is the person to go to. As a member of the Jackson Family Wines Collection, and its current proprietor, she grew up in the business. Not only did she work at the family winery in her youth, as a teen she also spent a summer in Bordeaux, France, where she learned the language, culture, and the French technique of wine making. With all her experience and knowledge, Jackson can tell you what are the best wines in Sonoma (she usually points to Verite, which consistently gets high scores from critics). She is also happy to point out the other brands of wine her family produces other than Kendall-Jackson for new generations of wine drinkers, such as Champ de Rêves’ Pinot Noir.

Making wine, however, is not Julia Jackson’s only passion. She and her family are also heavily involved in non profit work. Jackson herself created the Seeds of Empowerment program. It gives out $100,000 a year to female leaders and entrepreneurs committed to helping the environment and advocating social change. Jackson Family Winery donates annually to nearly 40 different non profits, including the Red Cross and the United Way.

Julia Jackson is a 2010 graduate of Scripps College, where she earned a B.A. in Studio Arts. She also attended the Stanford Summer Institute of General Management in 2010. Jackson is also a co-founder of Rex Apps, which provides up to date information on restaurants and bars.
