It is well known that Sonoma is a robust producer of fantastic wines comprised of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. But it is into this environment that Julia Jackson would like to promote one more varietal, that of the Cabernet grape. She believes that the area provides the perfect conditions for growing this grape and she is enthusiastic about adding this varietal to the Jackson Family Wines lineup. Vérité La Joie is one such wine that is comprised of a heavy amount of Cabernet in a Bourdeaux blend that has been very well received in the wine world.
Jackson Family Wines encompass the globe and the enthusiasm with which Julia has embraced her role as a company spokesperson has proved infectious. The family company continues to grow and expand in many areas of the globe. Their model embraces sustainability and the family believes that continuing the business through many more generations is key. Julia Jackson is proud to be a part of her family’s business and is excited to see what the future holds for Jackson Family Wines, Cambria Seeds of Empowerment and Vérité La Joie. This family business shows that success is not limited to only multinational giant corporations.
