Julia Jackson is in the midst of a fascinating career in the winemaking industry and is one of the proprietors of an award-winning company with decades of tradition behind it. Her parents, Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, have both made a substantial impact on the wine industry with their careers, and Julia is following in their footsteps.Her mother has provided inspiration for Julia to develop a nonprofit that celebrates extraordinary women. Barbara Banke runs Jackson-Family Wines and Julia admires her intellect and smarts in so doing. She also relates that her mother is authentically herself and has been a wonderful role model for her. The nonprofit that she founded, Cambria Seeds of Empowerment, attempts to do the same for other aspiring girls and young women.This foundation celebrates those women who display strength in leadership while overcoming life’s adversity and hardship. They award cash grants to worthy participants who are making a difference in their local community.
Some of the pillars of their criteria include equality, community, and spirit. Jackson has felt compelled to act in this way as she noticed a dearth of positive role models for younger, impressionable girls who are aspiring to reach greater heights.Julia Jackson has been extensively educated in the wine business with her life’s experiences. She has also achieved a formal education in an effort to further her business life and develop her artistic side. The latter was accomplished by herBachelor of Arts, Studio Arts degree from Scripps College. The former was achieved by her Certificate in General Management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.Cardinale is one brand that Jackson-Family produces that is grown in the famous Napa Valley. This is one unique wine which is crafted from the mountain vineyards of the valley. The rocky soil conditions produce a vintage with distinct qualities that can’t be found elsewhere.
