Winemaking is one of the most fascinating, sophisticated and demanding industries in the world. There are literally hundreds of winemaking companies on the market today, but there is only one Jackson Family Wines. This company has been around since the early 1980s, and it has grown dramatically throughout the decades. Founder Jess Jackson had a vision, and he fruitfully turned that vision into a reality. This family owned and operated business is one of the finest winemaking companies in the world, and it has wineries on just about every continent except Antarctica. It produces a wide range of beverages, but one of its best is the Santa Maria Valley Rose of Pinot Noir. This specific wine is very flavorful, and it’s full of ripeness. Julia Jackson just happen to be the youngest daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. Julia didn’t always inspire to work in this exclusive industry.
While working in some of the family’s wineries, she began to develop a passion for it. While in Bordeaux, France, she would immerse herself into the culture by learning about foreign sales, different types of wine, global markets and sorting tables. Her work days would sometimes last up to 14 hours. By the time Julia made it back home, she had become a wine extraordinaire. Her ability to fluently speak French gave her the opportunity to teach a sixth grade French class. French just seems to be the common theme with her as one of her closest friends just happened to be a French girl. Julia works as a representative for her family’s winemaking business. The family has a beautiful 583-acre site in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Julia’s very own “Julia’s Vineyard,” is located at the main Santa Maria Valley site. Seeds of Empowerment personifies everything about this woman, and this non-profit organization is a reflection of the Jackson Family Way.
