Working with wines is very competitive and difficult. People have learned the hard way that this market is driven by the economic conditions as wines are a luxurious commodity. One individual that knows this all-too-well is Julia Jackson. She is a proprietor of Jackson Family Wines, a brand that was found in 1982 by Jess Jackson.
This entrepreneur graduated from Scripps College in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Studio Arts. That same year, she obtained a Certification in General Management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. She then pursued a career in the winery industry that was embedded in her by her parents. Solid education intertwined with experience from a young age facilitated a fruitful career. Her main role is to promote the brand both domestically and internationally, and thus far she was able to help the company reach out to thousands of people worldwide and what Julia Jackson knows.
The Jackson Family Wines has grown to be present in six different countries over five continents. These include, but are not limited to, Europe, North America, Africa and more. The company offers dozens of high-quality wines, and an example of a prominent one is Champ de Rêve. This brand has achieved quite a momentum since its foundation in 2010.
Jackson also aims to empower women through her foundation “Cambria Seeds of Empowerment”. The reason behind this is her perspective on the industry that seems to be male-dominant. Thus, her foundation donates a $100,000 every year to non-profit organizations which help those who meet the criteria of being the so-called “Women Warriors”.
Jackson accredits most of her success to her parents who founded the company 35 years ago. By working as a team, they showed her how to turn an idea into profit. Furthermore, she states that her mother is the one who created the majority of the brilliant ideas and resume her.
