Christopher Jackson, Family Proprietor

Raised in Sonoma County, the son of Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson grew up surrounded by wine and naturally cultivated a deep respect for the challenges and unique rewards of high-elevation winegrowing. Today, he is immersed in all aspects of the business, with particular focus on Stonestreet Estate Winery and the enduring quest to craft wines of distinct character and complexity.

Together with his wife, Ariel, Christopher takes the long view, preserving the land and legacy of this region so that it can be enjoyed for years to come. The couple have three young sons.

“This is our undertaking as a family, and my undertaking – to make sure that what we bring to the table off this estate is as special as it possibly can be,” Christopher said.

He holds an undergraduate degree from Santa Clara University and a Juris Doctorate from University of California Berkeley School of Law.
“Quality is the driving force behind our choice to cultivate mountains, ridges, benches and hillsides. In these locales, the farming is more challenging, and the wines are truly distinctive — a mindset our family embraces fully.”
