Is Julia Jackson Right About Sonoma Cabernets and Vérité La Joie?

Vérité La Joie is one of the Cabernet varietals that is gaining recognition in the Sonoma Valley region. Long known for its Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, Julia Jackson and the entire team at Jackson Family Wines believe that Cabernet deserves a place on the podium as well. The Vérité La Joie is a Cabernet strong Bourdeaux blend that tastes favorably alongside many similar blends with a much heftier price point. It is not surprising that the Jackson family is at the forefront of this initiative as their entire brand has long been associated with innovation.

The Vérité label is one of the newer brands in the Jackson Family Wine portfolio and is positioned as a wonderful option and at an affordable price point. This Sonoma Valley vineyard continues to create new and exciting wines and has been very well received. The idea of growing the Cabernet varietal in Sonoma Valley is one whose time has come, according to the family company’s spokesperson, Julia Jackson. It will be interesting to see how the Cabernet wines perform in this region. Many wine aficionados do agree that the area is a perfect fit for the requirements of growing healthy Cabernet grapes.

When not busy with the family business, Julia spends a lot of time managing her charitable foundation, Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. A graduate of Scripps College, Jackson believes that all women deserve to have the opportunity to thrive and succeed in the workplace. Julia is a staunch supporter of the sustainability initiatives that Jackson Family Wines have embraced, and she is proud to be working so closely with her family. She is very respectful of the family’s deep roots in the winemaking business and is excited to be a part of the next generation to care for the Jackson family’s company. View more posts from Julia at
