Born in 1988, Julia Jackson was born in San Francisco, California to Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson. The family lived for raising their children in the wine making business. The family is well known and carries a large assortment of wines from 4 different continents. Because her family was well known in the industry, Julia knew that her passion would be what drove her to carry on the family name.
Once Julia graduated from high school, she went on to college at Scripps College and graduated with her bachelors before she went on to carry a course from Stanford Graduate School of Business where she took classes in general management. Once she completed these courses, she went to France to further her education. She went forth to earn new techniques that she could use to bring in higher sales and distribute further than before. She went on to work closely with the wineries in France that her family owned while there.
While Julia spent time in France, she went to the small French town to learn a more advanced technique of wine making from Champagne, France. She worked hard to keep interest within the wine making business and used this with her knowledge to bring a new look and style to her family business. These changes have contributed to reaching a much wider base than previously reached.

One of those brands that they produce in Sonoma Valley is Anakota. This wine carries a history that runs to the core of Sonoma Valley.
