Awarded wines can also be identified at Continente’s Wine Cellar, a platform where the most suitable wines are found for each gastronomic specialty, with filters ranging from price, to current discounts, including the type of wine, region, intensity and guard type. Continente’s Wine Cellar is associated with the Continente online store, allowing immediate purchase of the choices made.

Paula Ferro, Beverage Business Unit Director at Sonae MC, stresses that “these Continente exclusive wines’ distinctions reveal that strong partnerships with producers and a focus on the quality of wines selected by Continente’s oenologists, are essential to continue to expand the number of awards and medals like these.”

This year, 44 new wine producers joined the Continente Producers Club (CPC), demonstrating the sector’s dynamism and quality. Support for national production and the availability of the best that is produced in the different national wine regions is at the origin of the work that Continente has been developing over the years.
