Julia Jackson was born in San Francisco, California in 1988 as the middle daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbra Banke. Julia has said that for as long as she can remember, she has had an interest in wine. Julia now works with the international sales team at Jackson Family Wines, helping to make her family’s award-winning wines known to a new age group of wine drinkers all around the world. Julia Jackson attended Scripps College from 2006 to 2010 and earned a Bachelor of Arts specified in Studio Art. At a young age, Julia learned French in order to communicate with one of her life-long friends, the daughter of one of her family’s winemakers. Since Julia was fluent in the language, she took on a role of teaching French to sixth-graders while she was in college.
On top of everything else she has accomplished, Julia also works with the nonprofit organization Aurora Consulting very often. Julia has stated in the past that her father always had her work in the family business when she was younger and that made her really appreciate what it takes to become successful. The Cenyth varietal of wine was designed by Julia Jackson and is arguably one of the best wines in Sonoma. Anakota, La Jota, Byron and Zena Crown are a few of the other of the brands that the Jackson Family Wines produces. Julia Jackson is a young, innovative and powerful woman who puts her heart into everything she does, and she does it all.
