The Art of Winemaking: Jackson Family Wines Collection

Julia JacksonJackson Family Wines Collection has come a long way over the decades. It was once a small family business, but as of today, JFWC is an international powerhouse. It produces some of the most diverse tasting wines on earth. The company has winery locations in the United States, France, Italy, South Africa and Chile. Its 583-acre site in Oregon produces some of the best Pinot Noir wines. Julia Jackson, spokesperson and representative of the company, has kind of fallen into the business by accident. She never really was a wine connoisseur while growing up as a very young adult, but she would soon develop feelings for the winemaking process.Julia Jackson just so happens to be the daughter of company’s founder. Jess Jackson and his wife Barbara Banke made it possible to raise a family of children while evolving as a company.Julia Jackson

Julia and her siblings would have to pick grapes in the hot Pacific Northwest’s heat, but this would instill the strong ambition that they posses to this very day. Julia has spent a lot of time working at the company’s many wineries and this is where she would develop strong feeling for the culture. By spending so much time in France, she became fluent in the French language, and she’d go on to teach a sixth-grade French Class. On top of that, Julia has modeled as well as attended Stanford University and Scripps College.Seeds of Empowerment is her nonprofit organization, and it’s all about “girl power.” This organization celebrates the empowerment of women on a daily basis. Jackson Family Wines Collection produces Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and other fine wines. One of its great tasting beverages is the Barbara’s Clone 667 Pinot Noir. The art of winemaking for an economical class is fully covered, but who knows what the Jackson family will venture into next.
