A Man and His Mountain
Edward Humes, Winner, Pulitzer Prize; Author, A Man and His Mountain: The Everyman who Created Kendall-Jackson and Became America's Greatest Wine Entrepreneur
In conversation with Barbara R. Banke, Chairwoman, Jackson Family Wines; Widow of Jess Jackson
Jess Stonestreet Jackson was a self-made billionaire who built the Kendall-Jackson empire into a best-selling brand of super premium wines in the U.S. - all after the age of 50. Jackson Family Wines is one of the last remaining family-owned winery groups and owns and operates more than 35 individual wineries in California and around the world. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward Humes and Jess’s widow and Kendall-Jackson Chairwoman Barbara Banke will tell the story of this amazing man and his influence on the California wine industry. Kendall-Jackson will conduct a wine tasting after the event.
