"A Man and His Mountain"

Nov 25, 2013

Kendall-Jackson wines are far better known than the man behind them. A new biography of Jess Jackson tells the story of the vintner and his accomplishments.

A Man and His Mountain marks the first time that author Edward Humes turned his attention to a biography.  He reflects that it was a project quite different from his long-form journalistic books.


Far more than a comprehensive biography, Humes, says Jess Jackson’s legacy will be the ongoing success of the winery that bears his name.
