Julia Jackson Is A True Wine Warrior

Julia Jackson’s family has one of the largest number of family-owned wineries in the U.S. Founded in 1981 by patriarch Jess Jackson, the Jackson Family Vineyards has survived on a long-term strategy of provided top-quality wines and social responsibility.

Middle daughter Julia is a wine guru extraordinaire. She knows everything there is to know about the wine business and then some. She harnessed her incredible work ethic from her mother, Barbara Benke, who also serves as Chairperson of Jackson Family Wines.

Julia was born in San Francisco in 1982. She recalls the memories of how she and her siblings had to pick wine in the hot California sun. “That was my first taste of the business.” From a young age, she was already extremely interested in the wine business. While family members work in all areas of the winery, Julia is the face of the company. Most believe she is the logical choice to take over when that time arrives.

After attending Scripps College from 2006-2010, she traveled to France to learn more about wine production and distribution. Julia completely immersed herself into the French culture. “It was a wonderful experience, and I learned far more than I ever imagined.”

Julia continued her education and obtained a certificate in Management from Stanford Business School. While helping run the family wineries, Julie also created the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment non-profit to benefit women that possess the skill and determination to overcome obstacles. The non-profit awards $100,000 in funding to other organizations that uphold the same values and morals as Cambria.
