Julia Jackson
Proprietor, Jackson Family Wines

“My father instilled in his children a love of the land. I believe we all have a connection to the earth and duty to leave it better than we found it.”

A second-generation vintner of Jackson Family Wines, Julia is the daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. Raised on the family’s mountain vineyards in Sonoma County, she has a deep respect for nature and sees herself as a custodian of the land. “It’s our responsibility to be caretakers of our natural resources for the next generation – my family does not take that for granted.”

Julia has been involved in the business from an early age. “Whether picking grapes in 100-degree weather, or working harvests at wineries around the world, my dad always made sure we appreciated that being successful takes hard work.”

A strong environmental advocate, she focuses her charitable contributions on regenerative agriculture and ocean conservation, and on creating partnerships for the company with thought-leading organizations like the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. In addition, she serves on the board of the Monarch Challenge, which encourages protecting pollinators through clean winegrowing practices.

Julia also spent time in France learning the language and immersing herself in the rich wine culture. She has a deep appreciation for art and brings her creative aesthetic to the marketing and sales teams. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Scripps College.
