Jackson Family Wines has a passionate belief in three time-honoured principles: the importance of family, the molding of character through hard work, and the creation of high-quality wines through long-term stewardship of the land. Barbara Banke owns and operates twenty-five wineries in California and around the world.
Over the last thirty years, the family has acquired land and developed several original wineries as well as accumulated many established vineyards and wineries, each with varied history and incredible terroir. All have their own independent winemakers, vineyard crews, cellar staff and tasting rooms. The family philosophy is to let each vineyard speak for itself, producing the best wine that is suited to its terroir. This evening will demonstrate this philosophy by presenting a few examples of what California has to offer.
Nicolas Seillan, son of winemaker, Pierre Seillan, will present and highlight his father’s wines of Vérité and Anakota Winery. These wineries apply a microcru philosophy to source from across the mountains of Sonoma County, which offers some of the most diverse soil found in California. Using Bordeaux varietals and blending style, Vérité has earned world renowned recognition. Anakota expresses the terroir of Knight’s Valley from Mount St. Helena’s high elevation and mountain fruit.
These wineries will be accompanied with other Jackson Family Wines, also consistent with the commitment of the family to maintain the core principles of good winemaking through the expression of terroir.
