A self-described “chameleon” who has worked across numerous areas at Jackson Family Wines, Julia Jackson is the middle daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke. Helping to rebrand such family-owned international wineries as Arcanum as well as Tenuta di Arceno, for the past year she has been focused on domestic venues including Santa Maria-based Cambria Estate Winery. A natural-born artist, Jackson brings a highly developed aesthetic to her work, helping to shape the look and feel of brands. Philanthropy is an increasing concern for Jackson. In November 2014 she established Seeds of Empowerment, an initiative through Cambria Estate Winery which provides $100,000 in annual grants to exceptional “warrior women” around the world who have overcome great adversity and are affecting change in their local communities and around the globe.
