Owning a family business is a special thing in life. Not only are you a part of something that runs in your bloodline, it gives you a sense of self-worth. This is the case with Jackson Family Wines. This company has been around for over 30 years, and it has grown into an industry leader. Passion, hard work and dedication is the name of the game. Producing fine wine is no easy task. The climate and the soil plays a key role with the end product. The Santa Maria Valley is home to Jackson Family Wines. Founder Jess Jackson turned his dream into a reality and even though he is no longer here in physical form, his essence still runs deep.The business is being run by the Jackson Family. This would be Jess’ wife, and his children. The siblings have all worked these hallowed fields from the time they were little.
Julia Jackson, the youngest daughter, would help her father in the fields by picking and sorting through grapes. This action would instill a sense of hard work that the children have carried over into their adult life. Julia was born in 1988, but she wasn’t always interested in the business side of things. This interest happened while she worked in the family’s wineries. Julia entrenched herself into the French culture by studying every aspect of the business. As of today, the Stanford University graduate plays a critical role in daily operations.Julia has her own foundation known as Seeds of Empowerment, and she has her own vineyard. Julia’s Vineyard produces great tasting Pinot Noir. Jackson Family Wines also offers Merlot, Champagne and Chardonnay. This family affair has laid the blueprint for winemaking success. Only the future knows what will happen next, but by the looks of it, Julia Jackson will remain a critical component to its success.
