Christmas Comes Early

Enter to win $300 for artisanal goods

Did you spend last December frantically shopping for last-minute holiday gifts? Take a moment to repress the emotional scarring, and then plan ahead with Tasting Table's Open Market holiday shopping extravaganza happening on Saturday, December 6. It's the definitive celebration of small-batch culinary rock stars with artisan goods aplenty, including pour-over coffee from Intelligentsia and fried chicken steam buns from Yusho to name just a few. The best part? Alamos Wines wants to send you there with money in your pocket.

Enter the Alamos Open Market Sweepstakes for your chance to win two tickets to the event, with a $300 voucher to spend on all the high-quality vendors setting up shop.

Since wine and shopping go hand in hand, take a break from checking out the vendors and sample the versatile Malbec from Alamos. Plus, as an added bonus, you can meet TV host, producer and author Adam Richman while you sample the award-winning wines from Argentina.

After you've entered, visit the Alamos Wines Facebook page for recipe and pairing ideas for your upcoming holiday bash. Feeling daring? Try Adam's recipe for Classic Ribeye Steak with Chimichurri Sauce (see the recipe) with a bottle of Alamos Malbec.

Even if you don't end up taking home the grand prize, you can still enjoy the goods by snagging a $5 ticket to the event. After all, great food and wine are the gifts that keep on giving.
