Julia Jackson is a part of the Jackson Family, a family that owns a series of wineries and vineyards across the world. Their company is called Jackson Family Wines. In 1982, her parents became involved in the wine business. Julia was born in 1988 in San Francisco, and has spent her entire life around wine. As a child, she would pick and sort through grapes. She believes that the best variety of wine in Sonoma is Cabernet, despite the fact that Sonoma has a great reputation for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

From the time that she was a child, Julia was mesmerized by animals and nature. She painted a lot of wolves, killer whales and frogs. She always had a very strong artistic streak and a love of animals and farming, which made her a perfect fit for the life that she was born into.
Due to her love of art, she attended Scripps College from 2006 to 2010 and earned her Bachelor’s Degree of Art in Studio Art. She also received a Certificate in General Management from Stanford Graduate School of Business.
One of the brands of wine from Jackson Family Wines, other than the famous Kendall-Jackson, is Cambria, made in Cambria Estate and Winery. Julia Jackson is using this brand in conjunction with the non-profit that she works with, Seeds of Empowerment. Seeds of Empowerment is a non-profit that she founded in 2014. The purpose of seeds of empowerment is to empower and celebrate inspirational women worldwide. Every year, a grant of $100,000 is given to charitable organizations to reach this goal, and women from all over the world are chosen to receive monetary grants. Each bottle of Cambria includes a water color painting by Julia and acknowledgment of inspirational women in the world.
