Founded by Jess Jackson, in the 1980s, the Jackson Family Wines group is considered one of the largest wine producers in the United States, with more than thirty brands in its range of products. Brands known and recognised for their flavour as well as for their distinctive nature and bearing the stamp of the Kendall-Jackson family philosophy. A culture personified through two beliefs: " each vine produces wines with different and unique flavours " and " a clever mixing of these wines with strangely assorted flavours can create a wine with much more complexity and appeal ". It is with this intention of offering wines with exceptional flavours, revealing a unique cultural heritage, that Jackson Family Wines has many vineyards throughout the world. From Tuscany to France, including California, these particular wines are distributed by Mähler-Besse : Château Lassègue as a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Vérité in Sonoma County, Lokoya and Cardinale in the heart of Napa Valley, Arcanum in Tuscany and Hartford on the Russian River Valley.
