Julia Jackson has been blessed with a wonderfully positive female role model in her mother Barbara Banke. She has admired her intelligence and business savvy ways and considers it a great advantage to observe her fine example of leadership over the years. Jackson is one of the proprietors of Jackson-Family Wines and founded Cambria Seeds of Empowerment to inspire and elevate women in her own right.The Cambria program calls attention to Warrior Women who have successfully dealt with adversity. They have also demonstrated strong, female leadership in nonprofit organizations that help inspire their local communities. The foundation awards cash grants of $100,000 each year to those who meet their criteria. The three traits that are emphasized are equality, community, and spirit.Jackson felt that there weren’t enough positive role models for young women to emulate as they strive to develop their own potential.
Putting forth good examples of those who persevere in the face of adversity and overcome obstacles is essential in Jackson’s mind. The program was founded by Jackson in 2014 and is her way of giving back and helping to inspire the next wave of young, female leaders.Education has been a priority in Julia Jackson’s life and her rise to prominence. She fed her artistic nature by attending Scripps College and receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art. She also received a Certificate from the Stanford Graduate School of Business in General Management.Copain Wines are one of the noteworthy brands produced by Jackson-Family Wines and they are distinct because of their light and bright style. They are easily paired with many types of food and are considered balanced and expressive. These grapes are cultivated in the Anderson Valley of Mendocino County and Monterey County and they produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah. The brand was founded in 1999 and has grown in its reputation and is a wonderful addition to the Jackson-Family portfolio of wines.
