Wine is something that Julia Jackson has always had an interest in. It’s easy to see why. Her parents are the wine giants behind Kendall-Jackson wine. From a very young age, the memories that Julia has involved wine. She remembered her family picking grapes, her family working together at the wineries, and more. From an early age, Julia also picked up French which along with wine has been a lifelong passion.Julia is an alumna of Scripps College where she received a degree in art. She did her graduate work at Standford School of Business. During her time at Scripps College, she was able to land a teaching position where she taught 6th grade French! Her love of the language didn’t ender there. After college, she traveled to France to learn more about the language, culture, and their style of winemaking.All of this has helped Julia to get to where she is today. She’s now involved with international brands in the Jackson Family Wines portfolio.
These include Chateau Lassegue, Tenuta di Areceno, and more! Julia is using her creative talents to help appeal the different types of wine to wine buyers in their home countries. It’s a big task but if anyone is up for it, it’s Julia. She’s been working in the Communications and Marketing departments for years.Perhaps bigger than Julia’s love of wine is her heart. A lot of inspiration for helping others comes from her mother, Barbara Banke. Julia started a non-profit grant-making program in 2014. It’s called Seeds of Empowerment and it supports women all across the globe. The program gives grants to those who help protect the environment, inspire others, become leaders, and create opportunities for underserved populations. Julia’s family also contributes to over 40 non-profit organizations. At the end of the day, the family wants to create good wine and do good in the world.
