Jackson Family Wines

The wine multinational "Jackson Family Wines" with its headquarters in Santa Rosa in Sonoma County(California) since 1996 was founded in 1982 by Jess Stonestreet Jackson (1930-2011). The rapid rise and growth of the company corresponds exactly to the American cliché "from rags to riches". Jackson, who grew up in poor circumstances, tried his hand at various jobs during his studies, including postman, dockworker, policeman, ambulance driver and lifeguard, before graduating with a degree in law and then studying real estate law. In 1974, he bought an 80-acre fruit ranch in the small town of Lakeport (Lake County, in the North Coast region) and planted vines.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
