MENDOZA, Argentina, March 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamos® Wines, producers of America's most preferred Malbec1, today announced a partnership with Adam Richman, host of NBC's "Food Fighters." As a popular TV food personality, Richman will use his culinary expertise to create five new Daring Pairing recipes designed to pair specifically with Alamos' Argentine wines.
"A lot of people love wine, but worry about making the wrong choice when pairing wine with food. I think I'm fortunate to have found Alamos and to have had the opportunity to visit Argentina. Not only did I get to taste amazing wines like Alamos Malbec, but I got to experience the flavors of Argentinian food - from gourmet cuisine to awesome street food," said Richman. "Alamos creates delicious, respected and reasonably priced wines and I'm looking forward to creating daring dishes that combine flavors from my kitchen with the flavors of Argentina and pairing them with Alamos wines."
Alamos Malbec is versatile enough to complement just about any food. Unique growing conditions at the foothills of Argentina's Andes Mountains produce Malbec grapes that combine bold layers of flavor and excellent natural acidity for a wine that enhances any meal. The high elevation of the vineyards provides the ideal climate and sun exposure to yield grapes with rich, layered aromas and flavors.
In addition to the award-winning Malbec, the Alamos portfolio of high-quality Argentine wines also includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Blend, Malbec Selección, Chardonnay, and the bright, fruity white wine Torrontés.
