400 Wines featured at the Continente wine market

The Wine Market is back at Continente stores and Online store, from September 24th to October 20th, with more than 400 wines on sale, from various regions of the national territory, with direct discounts of up to 70%.

Among the main novelties are ‘Feitoria Reserva Douro Tinto’, produced by Real Companhia Velha, and ‘Vale do Rocim Tinto Regional Alentejano’, produced by Herdade do Rocim, both for sale exclusively at Continente stores.

Also noteworthy are the usual classics such as ‘Vallado’, produced by Quinta do Vallado, ‘Papa Figos’ and ‘Esteva’, by Casa Ferreirinha, ‘Pacheca’, by Quinta da Pacheca, ‘Muralhas de Monção’ of Vinhos Verdes, ‘EA’ and ‘Cartuxa’, produced by the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation, and ‘Esporão do Alentejo’, from Herdade do Esporão.

The Continente winemaking team’s suggestion, which researches, evaluates and chooses the Wine cellar’s wine range, is to also explore new aromas and flavours, with the proposal of mono-variety wines, produced from a single grape variety, such as ‘Castello D ' Alba Viosinho Douro’, by Rui Roboredo Madeira, ‘Pedra do Gato Encruzado Dão’, by Casa da Passarella, and ‘Vinha da Valentina Merlot’ and ‘Cabernet Sauvignon Península de Setúbal’, by Casa Ermelinda Freitas.

This year so far, 57 Continente’s exclusive wines, developed in partnership with national producers, have won more than 100 medals in prestigious national and international wine contests, such as the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London, the Brussels World Contest or the Challenge International du Vin, in France.

One of the most relevant trophies was the first prize awarded to the ‘Moscatel Roxo de Setúbal Venâncio da Costa Lima family reserve’, in the international competition “Muscats du Monde”, considered to be the best muscat in the competition.

And because the wines’ excellence must go perfectly together with the best cheeses and sausages, in order to continue promoting the art of snacking, which translates into moments of sharing at the table with family and friends, the Continente Wine Market inspires customers to make perfect combinations of cheeses, sausages and wines, with several suggestions for harmonization. We highlight the Continente Seleção’s 200g Mirandela PGI regional sausage with 15% discount (now at € 1.35), Continente’s 200g Arganil meat sausage (now at € 2.49) and Continente Seleção’s 400g 7 months S. Jorge DOP cheese (now at € 4.49). This cheese, after winning 3 stars in the Portuguese edition of Great Taste 2019, which gave direct access to the contest in England, was distinguished with 2 stars in the Great Taste contest in England.

The Continente Wine Market, the largest in the country, is a way to support and honour national production, showing the quality and diversity of Portuguese wines, from different regions and from several producers. This year alone, 44 new wine producers joined the Continente Producers Club (CPC), reinforcing the sector’s dynamism and quality.
