San Diego + Wines = Home
If wines and wine-tasting events are your thing, than you’ve come to the right place. Even if you’re new to the neighborhood, you know you’ll fit right in – especially knowing these delicious facts about California wine:
California, along with New York and Florida, lead the United States in consumption of the most wine and, furthermore, California is the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, right after France, Italy and Spain (Sommers, 2008).
Living in such a cultured and diverse city such as San Diego, Camden is able to invite and feature local businesses in the neighborhoods of Chula Vista, Little Italy, Temecula and San Marcos to introduce residents to all the treasures their city holds. Specifically in Little Italy (littleitalysd.com), where we have our Camden Tuscany community, this neighborhood tends to attract millennial entrepreneurs, restaurateurs and business professionals while also being a hub for local artists and mecca for veteran foodies.
Small Business Spotlight: The Flight Path Wine Bar and Bistro
“Born out of our love of fine wines and delicious food, the Flight Path has become the premier location for wining & dining in San Diego. After years of studying wine, traveling the world and sampling different cuisines, we decided to make our way home and bring the world to San Diego.”
We asked local business owner, Tammy, to introduce The Flight Path Wine Bar and Bistro with our residents who may not have known this award-winning wine bar was just steps from the community!

Owner and entrepreneur, Tammy, obliged our community with a hosted wine-tasting event, where residents were able to take advantage of holiday discounts on wines from around the globe. What was significant was that everyone was able to mingle, shop and dine!
Tammy’s background includes spending over a decade as a footwear product manager for action sports companies like Reef and Vans. She adds, “There is a strong possibility you (or someone you know) has worn shoes I made!” With a long term dream on hand to offer a global wine list and wine flights, she started by studying and earning certifications at the International Guild of Sommeliers and the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). Tammy shares, “During this period, I worked in wine sales to learn the market and more about the wine industry. While working in wine sales, I also worked part-time at two local wine bars.” Sound like an entrepreneur you know? Is it you? Are you searching for a place to live, get inspired and fulfill your dreams?
Perfect gift for that hard to please palette? Head over to Tammy’s wine bar and bistro. Here’s why…
What is unique about The Flight Path Wine Bar and Bistro is that it features over 70 wines by the glass or bottle. Tammy includes, “All of our wines are varietally correct, small production and not sold at major retailers. We feature wines from the best regions around the world, including obscure areas like Corsica and Brazil.” Matching a big wine list with a big heart, she also donates to numerous local charities and has partnered with neighbor and non-profit, The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego. If you would like to keep up on events and happenings at this local Little Italy business, email firstname.lastname@example.org to get signed up to the newsletter.
Since we had so much fun working with Tammy at the wine tasting event, we’ve asked her to share even more delicious wine facts and tips. Stay tuned!
