Flight Plan Wine & Tapas

Flight Plan Rachel Wine Flight

We must start a flight list with the obvious choice, Flight Plan Wine & Tapas. You can find this location in the picturesque area of Jones Valley, and true to its name, this restaurant and wine bar has flights of wine. The wine flights are 2oz pours of 4 wines served one at a time to try at your leisure. The menu offers flight options like: “Wine Bouquet” featuring wines with beautiful aromas, “Bubbles Galore” with sparkling wines from different grape varieties, or “Spicy is Nice” with wines with spicy notes from around the world. 

The food menu has tapas, or small bites, which you can also turn into a food flight. I suggest ordering the sweet and savory stuffed dates, fried deviled eggs, spicy Marcona almonds, charcuterie boards, pizzas, hoisin salmon, and more. Along with wine, they also offer whiskey flights where you can design your flight of 4 half oz pours.
