MENDOZA, Argentina, May 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamos® Wines, makers of America's favorite Malbec1, and Adam Richman, author of brand-new travel memoir and cookbook Straight Up Tasty: Meals, Memories and Mouthfuls from My Travels and the host of NBC's "Food Fighters," are challenging you to dare to pair. The wine brand and the popular TV personality have teamed up again, this time to invite consumers to dare to pair with Alamos Malbec for an opportunity to win a trip to New York for a daring culinary experience with Richman.
"I've had a blast creating recipes to pair with the award-winning wines from Alamos and now I can't wait to see the creative pairings that I know our fans will come up with," said Richman. "The versatility of this Malbec means you really can dare to pair with just about anything, so the challenge is on!"

Richman's new book debuted this week and features two of his very own culinary creations designed to pair with the high-quality wines from Alamos: his twist on a traditional burger, the Malbec Burger with Creole Mustard Tomato Jam, and the multi-layered, chorizo-packed Sloppy 'Zo! sandwich, perfect for entertaining.
Grown at the foothills of Argentina's Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Alamos Malbec is America's favorite Argentine wine.2 The unique growing conditions result in a wine with bold layers of flavor and excellent natural acidity, making it easy to dare to pair with a wide variety of foods.
In addition to Malbec, the Alamos portfolio of award-winning Argentine wines also includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Blend, Seleccion Malbec, Chardonnay, and the bright, fruity white wine Torrontes.
