Rene M. Fleming

Owner of RELM, René possesses the foresight and eccentricity to truly add something innovative to the City of Carlsbad.  A native Californian René graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. Degree in Business Economics.  She then went on to create a couple Coffee Cafes.

Moving on from her successful cafes after 5 years, René transitioned into the wine industry.  Throughout these pursuits Rene was instrumental in promoting wine education to many local restaurants and resorts in addition to hosting many private in-home wine events. This all led to her latest venture of opening a  “niche” establishment, RELM, combining a comfortable café atmosphere with a relaxing wine & beer bistro.

As part of her focus and support of the economy, she displays local artists within Relm and hosts live music throughout the week.  She  utilizes local produce and works with local charities for fundraising efforts further diversifying her establishment while at the same time giving back.
