The Jackson Family Wines company celebrates Warrior Women through its charity, Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. The daughter and spokesperson of the family wine company, Julia Jackson is emblematic of the very traits that the charity chooses to honor in its grants to other non-profit organizations. A graduate of Scripps College and the summer certificate program at Stanford Business School, Jackson has the educational background that has helped her to be an important part of the family business.
The Cambria Estates Julia’s Vineyard Pinot Noir is beloved by both critics and wine enthusiasts the world over. The 2010 vintage was even named the Wine of the Year by well-respected industry publication, Wine Enthusiast. The company has been a long-standing practitioner of sustainable winemaking methods and believes that in order to successfully continue their business, the earth and planet must be healthy.

Contrary to many in the area, Jackson believes that the best varietal is not the Pinot Noir, but one of the many Cabernets. To back up this claim, she suggests one try the fairly recent Vérité La Joie which is a Cabernet heavy Bourdeaux blend. She is not afraid to go against popular opinion and forge her own path. This varietal is exciting in its own right and it stands out against the norm.
Julia often cites her mother Barbara as a strong influence on her life, especially as she watched her work diligently beside her father Jess as the family was growing the Kendall-Jackson empire. Julia Jackson believes that women need not be inauthentic in order to be successful in the business world, and her charity Cambria Seeds of Empowerment has set out to honor such women. The Warrior Women that Julia honors through this charity do not feel that they must change their personalities in order to get ahead.
