SOL COCINA: Mondays in November = Half-Off Wine by the Bottle!

NEWPORT BEACH, October 2011 – Celebrate the fall harvest at SOL Mexican Cocina, where November has been dubbed wine month! Every Monday night from 4:30 p.m. to close during the month of November, guests will have the opportunity to enjoy ½ off select bottles of wine with any food purchase. The promotion is intended to highlight the thoughtful wine list at SOL, which is known for having one of the most extensive selections of tequila in the region.

“It’s no secret that most of our bar takes a back seat to our expansive tequila selection, but our wine list is worthy of its own attention,” said Matt Baumayr, Managing Partner of SOL Cocina. “From a culinary standpoint, the spices and citrus found in Mexican dishes pairs beautifully with fine wines, and ours has been carefully chosen to complement our Coastal Mexican menu.”
