Flavors of Mexico: Tamales & Tintos
Alcomar is proud to announce its “Flavors of Mexico” three-part dinner series, debuting this fall. Presented by Chefs Alma Alcocer and Jeff Martinez, guests can look forward to a multi-course Mexican Seafood dinner highlighting the beloved cooking methods Austin cannot get enough of.
Each dinner will showcase a pairing of iconic Mexican libations with Mexican stables like tacos, moles, or the holiday favorite, tamales. Diners will experience the diversity of variations on a single dish while enjoying the complexities and subtleties of sip-worthy wine and spirits.
This December, tradition and heritage wrapped in a husk known as a Tamal will be paired with intriguing rosés and reds with a breadth of varietals from notable Spanish winemaker, Bodegas Torres.
