Description:
Jess Stonestreet Jackson, Jr. (February 18, 1930 – April 21, 2011) was an American wine entrepreneur and self-made businessman. He started the Kendall-Jackson wine business with the family's 1974 purchase of an pear and walnut orchard in Lakeport, California that was converted to a vineyard. The first release of Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay in 1982 closed the gap between the super premium and cheap wine market. Today, Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay is one of the most popular wines on the market. His style as a vintner was focused upon single-vineyard, mountain grown wines.
