Summers were a wonderful time for Julia Jackson when she was growing up. She worked at several of the family wineries where she slowly learned the business from top to bottom. She spent one fascinating summer in the fabled French region of Bordeaux. She had developed a wonderful friendship with the French daughter of a winemaker employed by Jackson Family Wines. Here she experienced French culture and learned to speak the language. Learning the French style of winemaking was an amazing highlight for her.
Education has been a mainstay in the life of Jackson. She has embarked upon a lifelong path of learning the wine business. She also received a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from Scripps College. To round out her formal education she enrolled in the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

She hopes to highlight positive role models for young women and girls with this effort. Seeds of Empowerment awards cash grants to non-profits that epitomize the program’s pillars of equality, community, and spirit.
Sonoma County is well known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. Julia Jackson believes that its Cabernet should be right up there with them as well. She also believes that the Sonoma region should be just as well known as Napa with their highly rated wines.
