Until February 20th, Continente stores will be featuring the traditional ‘Cheeses, Sausages and Wines Fair’ with a wide range of regional cheeses, sausages such as ‘alheiras’, chorizos and hams and a vast wines collection, from the various regions of the country, with direct discounts of up to 70%.

The Fair presents the best that is made in Portugal - such as the buttery sheep’s cheeses from Serra da Estrela, Azeitão and Serpa or the cheeses from the islands of S. Jorge and S. Miguel, with different curing times -, but also from other parts of the world, such as Italian charcuterie, through the exclusive brand ‘Corte del Gusto’, as well as a selection of buffalo milk cheeses. Regarding charcuterie, in addition to Continente Seleção’s sliced range, the meat chorizos ​​and ‘alheiras’, there is also 24 and 38 month old sliced black pork ham.

More than 400 certified wines from more than 120 national producers are highlighted, including exclusive organic and vegan wines. In the 2021 edition, more than 4 million bottles of certified wines were sold during the Fair, in the same year in which 24 new Portuguese wine producers started a partnership with Continente.

Also in 2021, Continente’s exclusive and private label wines won more than 270 medals in national and international competitions, 45 of which being won by the ‘Contemporal’ and ‘Albenaz’ private labels. We highlight the Gold medal won by ‘Albenaz Jardim Secreto Alvarinho Premium Vinho Verde’ (€12.99), in the Brussels World Competition, and the Great Gold Medal won by ‘Contemporal Moscatel Roxo de Setúbal’ (€6.99), in the Mundus Vini competition, in Germany.

Among the novelties presented at this Fair are the first ‘Contemporal’ range’s limited editions: the ‘Contemporal Limited Edition Douro red’ (€6.99), by the winemaker Francisco Olazabal, responsible for the wines of both Quinta do Vale Meão and Quinta do Vallado, and the ‘Contemporal Limited Edition Alentejo White’ (€6.99), by winemaker Paulo Laureano. With only two thousand numbered bottles available, these wines represent a new segment, produced by renowned winemakers, with outstanding quality.

For the partnerships with producers’ exclusives, we highlight ‘Tapada das Lebres Signature’, from Herdade das Mouras in Alentejo: a full-bodied wine made from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Aragonez and Alicante Bouschet castes, aged for 8 months in American and French oak. Also from Alentejo there is the launch of ‘Dona Julieta Reserva Red’: a round wine, with an aroma of ripe black fruits, candied plums and hints of chocolate, from Casa José de Sousa in Reguengos de Monsaraz - the largest clay pots cellar in Portugal. From the Pinhão region, in Douro, the new ‘Vallegre Premium red’ presents an elegant and very versatile at the table wine, with an intense colour and black plum and lightly toasted aromas – ideal for pairing with the Fair’s sausages.

Continente’s ‘Cheeses, Sausages and Wines Fair’ is a way of supporting and honouring national production, by showing the quality and diversity of Portuguese cheeses, sausages and wines, from different regions and producers.
