I'm sorry I cannot answer your question. We did not have wine. I would inquire when making the reservation. It did not appear to be an establishment that allows you to BYOW. Good luck. I would love to know if they do.

No. One of the best spots I have ever been to, but also one of the most expensive. Worth every penny.

Description
Cocina del Mar restaurant, bar and lounge is perched atop striking cliffs overlooking Esperanza’s two private beaches and will take you on a culinary journey through the Sea of Cortez and Cabo’s verdant farms. Enter a buzzing lantern-lit bar and lounge that invites you to linger over hand-crafted cocktails before sauntering down to dinner above a cascade of oceanfront terraces kissed by white-capped waves. An outdoor exhibition kitchen is alive with energy, a perfect spot to engage with chefs and explore bites of coastal Baja cuisine and regionally inspired cocktails beside a glowing wood fired oven.
