Laura Jackson Giron, Jess Jackson’s daughter, was Kendall-Jackson’s first employee, working out of the winery’s office in the Jackson family’s basement in the early 1980s. She was known as a “Jackson of all trades,” working in accounting, hospitality, marketing and sales. She found her true passion while helping to plant the family’s first vineyard in Lake County California with her sister, Jenny, which holds true today.
Laura is co-proprietor of Jackson Family Wines, owns and farms over 160 acres of Russian River Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and is an ambassador for all of the family’s wineries. She and her husband, Rick Giron, make their home in Sonoma County.
