Quantum Leap Winery is one of the best Orlando, Florida wineries. This is the perfect place to hang out, as it functions as a wine bar, too.

But more importantly, this is known as a sustainable winery, with a focus on the environment and leaving a smaller carbon footprint in the process of making their delicious wine. Throughout the weekend they have their tasting room open and you can even schedule a private event.
If you want a high end wine experience, Montesquieu is the classic tasting experience. This company does make their own wine, but they are also an intermediary helping you navigate their hundreds of wines to figure out what you desire.
