Anyone who knows anything about wine knows the importance of the growing process involved in wine making. For those who love wine, a good Chardonnay is grown and cared for with the best weather conditions around. The Jackson Family Wines business knows how important it is to care for their grapes and fields with the best weather conditions possible. Each year Jackson Family Wines produces a very limited amount of certain wines like Syrah and Viognier. These wines are created in Santa Maria by a native to the lands of Santa Maria.
Julia Jackson is daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. She grew up surrounded by the wine fields and surrounded by aging wines. She worked in the fields to pull grapes during the summer months as well as on her weekends. She was taught very early on that the family business takes a lot of work to make the business successful.

The vineyards in Santa Maria are divided into sections that are specific to the geology and topography of each area. Because the Pacific Ocean is not that far away, there are no mountains and hills that will help in the growing of the grapes. It is the winds and fog that helps to keep the area the right temp to have a longer growing season compared to other vineyards in the business.
Julia has grown up watching her mother and father bring the business to successful limits however she knows the struggle of having successful women in the business. The wine business is overpowered by the male sex and therefore Jackson Family Wines works hard to bring more women into the business world.
Cambria Seeds of Empowerment helps to make sure that more women are growing in the business world. The nonprofit organization is what helps women to be more involved in their communities and business world. Julia and Katherine, sisters that help more vintners to become involved. Her mother is still in charge of the family business and is actively involved within the nonprofit.
Julia holds onto the emotional intelligence that her father held as what has helped him to be very successful in wine making. Even though her dad was born while the economy was at its lowest point, the Great Depression, he still believed that it needed more women involved in business and therefore worked beside his partner, Julia’s mother to bring success to the Jackson family.
