Jackson Family Wines has been a staple for the community for as far back as Julia Jackson can remember. She is daughter to the wine maker Jess Jackson and Barbara Bunke. She is their middle daughter and the one child that knew from very early on that she wanted to be involved in the family business. She grew up spending weekends and summers in the fields plucking grapes and being surrounded by various aging wines.
To Julia, the family business is more than just business. To her, it showcases her families passion as well as her childhood and the endless friendships that were made due to the family business. Of course it helps that her family business is tasty as well as healthy for wine lovers.
Julia went to Scripps College in Claremont from 2006 up to 2010. When she graduated with her bachelor’s degree, Julia then enrolled in a summer program offered through Stanford. The Summer Institute of General Management helped her to better understand what is needed within her own family business.
Julia helped her family to create a nonprofit that works to help women that struggled within their own communities. The Cambria Seeds of Empowerment started in 2014. The program is an honor to her mother who helped to make the Cambria Estate Winery famous since 1987. This program awards various charities and groups a specific amount annually by giving more than $100,000 annually.
