Mateus Rosé at The Big Festival & Mateus Giveaway

The Big Festival that is being held on the 24th – 26th August at Alex James Farm in the Cotswolds and it looks  amazing. Three days of great acts. Paloma Faith, Basement Jaxx, Craig David and so many more.

It’s a great looking festival and there really is something for everyone to do, including the children. There will be an amazing vintage fun fair, a big top for which is perfect for the younger festival goers. Even Peppa Pig and Justin Fletcher are going to be there.

The festival has so much going on. It also has an amazing array of food and drink on offer.  I’m not talking about a pint of cider in a plastic cup. There are places where you can sit and sip on a glass of bubbly or enjoy a nice cool gin.


The iconic wine brand, Mateus Rosé are also at the Big Festival. They are celebrating both their Portuguese roots and their musical heritage this summer with three days of Mateus Rosé Acoustic Picnics. The picnics will offer the best of Mediterrean food, the perfect summer wine, all accompanied by some sounds of some of 2018’s stars.

I know it is sounds like somewhere I would like to relax. Soak up the sounds of summer whilst enjoying a chilled glass of wine. It sounds perfect. If you are lucky enough to be going to The Big Festival then I recon it will be worth going along and checking their Acoustic Picnics out.

Here is the best bit, in conjunction with Mateus we have a wonderful giveaway for our readers. Two winners will win a wonderful gift pack. Each gift pack contains a bottle of Mateus Rosé and two glasses. Perfect for the summer days we will hopefully get.


Entry to this fantastic competition is via the Gleam app Below.

Closing date 31st May UK only.

    Never really been one for sitting around and not doing anything. When I’m at home in summer, I like to go swimming, check out pop-up events and see gigs, when I’m on holiday, I like to go sightseeing and to catch my favourite band. I suppose the best ‘relaxing’ moments of my summer would be on a train, boat or plane, with a book, an iPod and a drink, heading off on my next adventure.
