A toast to movies and wine

Whether your pallet lends itself to a merlot or a chardonnay, a pinot noir or a pinotage, there is something for everyone at The Galileo Open Air Cinema this season. Marking its return to the Cape winelands, the outdoor cinema will treat guests to a magical evening of entertainment at a host of picturesque handpicked venues.

Screenings take place every second Saturday at wine estates in Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschoek and Somerset West. Enjoy a relaxing evening with friends and family – spread out on the lawn, take part in some wine tasting and indulge in the delicious spread of artisanal food on sale. When it’s time for the movie to start (just after sunset), sit back, relax and top up your glass!
