For 30 years, the Jackson family has sustainably farmed and passionately tended our remarkable Santa Maria estate. Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson’s daughters, Katie Jackson and Julia Jackson, grew up among these vines. Drawn to the grit and beauty of winemaking, Katie and Julia continue the family business. Together with Barbara Banke’s keen knowledge of the industry and incredible business sense, Katie’s passion for sustainability and the land, and Julia’s creative backbone and dedication to empowering communities, the women of Cambria shape who we are today.
The men and women of Cambria have over 200 years of experience cultivating this land and crafting our inspiring wines. For three decades, Cambria winemaker Denise Shurtleff has been honing her ability as a vine whisperer, creating Santa Maria Valley wines that showcase the nuance of the region. Matt Mahoney, Vineyard Manager and Patrick Huguenard, Vineyard Director are natives of this valley where they farmed the soil on family ranches from a young age. Now, along with the rest of the Cambria family, they oversee the care of the precious benchland and tend to the rows of grapes stretching across the plateau, warmed by the lingering afternoon sun
