Vinification: The Jackson Family Way
Vinification is the process of turning ordinary agricultural grapes into some of the most refreshing beverages in the world. The grapes that produce this dynamic beverage can be found all around the world. The only different to the grapes is the actual difference in soils and climates, which makes for different tastes of wine. Jackson Family Wines personify this notion perfectly as it has wineries in Chile, France, Italy and in South Africa. Each region provides a different taste. The company has been around since 1982, and it is now a powerhouse throughout the world. Julia Jackson is one of the companies leading figures. This woman is more than just a pretty face as she’s very accomplished. She has a B.A. in Studio Art from Scripps College, and she has completed one of the most intense general management courses at Stanford University.
Julia has been unofficially in the winemaking business since her birth in 1988. She would work in the fields of the Santa Maria Valley with her father and older siblings. Her love for the business came somewhere down the line when she started working in Bordeaux, France. This is where she would go on to immerse herself into the culture. Julia would shadow certain influential figures, learn first-hand about other markets as well as study French sales. Some of her work/study days would be up to 14 hours long.Her “Seeds of Empowerment” organization is her pride and joy. This nonprofit organization donates up to $100,000 on an annual basis to deserving organizations. As far as Jackson Family Wines, this company is still producing top notch Merlot, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Its Clone 2A Pinot Noir gives you vibrant strawberry aromas while bursting with ripe red cherries in taste. Vinification and Jackson Family Wines are the perfect duo for success.
