The Quantum Leap Business Model

Equal to Jill and David’s appreciation for wine, is a mutual concern and respect for the environment. A core value of their business plan is to find an environmentally friendly solution for transporting wine to markets and ultimately the consumer.

Their strategy is simple and defines the term Quantum Leap – reinvent the wine-to-market delivery process.

Currently, all wine is finished, blended and packaged in the major grape growing regions around the world and then shipped in bottles to destinations where it will be purchased and consumed.

The Quantum Leap Winery model is to search for good quality, sustainably grown wine, wherever it is around the world but to transport it in large vessels to the Orlando winery. It is in this facility where wine will be stored, finished, blended and packaged. Jill and David know this process substantially reduces the carbon footprint associated with traditional wine production.

Quantum Leap’s vision and evolution includes that beyond bottling wine locally, Quantum Leap wines will be packaged in low carbon footprint vessels such as kegs, pouches or boxes. These environmentally conscious practices offer consumers the unique pleasure of enjoying quality wine from a local winery while also respecting our environment.

Meet The Team

Owner - Jill Ramsier

Jill fondly remembers visiting Napa Valley on family vacations with her parents – she may not have been able to drink back then but she became intoxicated by the beautiful landscape and delicious aromas of wine country.

She pursued a career in marketing in the hospitality industry and has 10+ years in management positions and extensive experience in marketing and food & beverage. Most recently she was CMO of Ruth’s Hospitality Group, Inc. where she continued to fuel her passion for wine. In May 2012, after over a year of planning, Jill decided to pursue her passion and take the leap into the wine industry.

Owner -David Forrester

David was introduced to fine wine by a college roommate who had a 1,000 bottle cellar when he was 22. This same roommate gave David and Edna a case of Chateau Margaux as a wedding present and David's love affair with wine was sealed. Throughout a business career blending Fortune 500 experience, successful entrepreneurial ventures and business turn-around consulting, David has pursued his love of wine through travel, purchase and consumption. After selling his successful recycling company David decided to marry his love of wine with his commitment to sustainability through the creation of a carbon footprint friendly winery.

It’s all about the love of wine and friendship. Jill Ramsier, a former food and beverage industry executive and David Forrester, an environmental industry pioneer, demonstrate a quantum leap of faith in their shared affection and knowledge of wine and wine-making, but also in their respective areas of expertise. As a restaurant industry and marketing executive, Jill can appropriately be described as smooth, bold and surprising.

They’ve designed the Quantum Leap Tasting Room for sophistication, comfort and conversation, validating the concept that great wine and those who love great wine deserve a great space. Their standards are high; Jill and David will partner only with high-quality producers from the world’s premier wine-growing regions.
