Jess Stonestreet Jackson was one of a small band of pioneering entrepreneurs who put California's wine country on the map. His life story is a compelling slice of history, daring, innovation, feuds, intrigue, talent, mystique, contrarianism, and luck, offering a unique window on the elegant, adventurous, and cut-throat worlds of Jackson's two passions: wine and horseracing. Time after time his decisions would be ignored, derided, then finally envied and imitated, as whole industries watched him become a billionaire and tried to keep up. He reinvented himself at mid-life, and became founder and CEO of Kendall-Jackson. The empire he constructed endures and thrives even after his death in 2011. In A Man and His Mountain, Edward Humes brings us the no-holds-barred tale of the brilliant, infuriating, successful man who seemed to win more than his share by staying far ahead of the pack.

Required listening for any wine maker
Wonderful, inspirational story. Thank you, Jess Jackson, for motivating us to go beyond our comfort zones and work hard to develop better wines and better service. As a small farmer winery, we will implement what we learned here to better serve our customers.
