During a promotional event in the UK, Julia’s mother as well as chairman of the company, Barbara Banke, launched their 2012 Vérité La Joie Cabernet blend. This wine was produce from the Sonoma County in California. Mrs. Banke pitted her wine against Napa Valley’s finest vintage during a specialized tasting and her Sonoma blend won hands down. Julia Jackson concurs that Sonoma produces the best wine for Cabernet as opposed to what that region is most famous for, namely Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Jackson’s family wineries produce gems like: Le Désir, Calina, La Muse and Vérité La Joie. The company also has wineries and vineyards located in Australia, Chile, Italy, South Africa and Bordeaux, France. Hoping to spread the word and introduce her family’s multi-regional assortment of fine wines across the globe, Julia now works alongside a team that specializes in international sales.
