COMPANY: Kendall-Jackson Wine Estates

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: Jess Jackson, of the Sonoma County wine label, released his first wine in 1982 and forged a path of success that resulted in a billion-dollar business, with sales of the Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay racking up to two million cases annually. Stealing Jackson’s attention as of late has been his award-winning racehorse Rachel Alexandra, the “Reigning Horse of the Year.” She is scheduled to square off against Zenyatta, an undefeated mare, for a $5 million purse.
