EXPERIENCE MAGICAL MOVIES IN THE WINELANDS

The Galileo, Cape Town’s beloved outdoor experience now in its 11th year, is screening at a different wine farm (a rotation of 15) in the Western Cape’s most renowned estates, like Laborie Estate, Vredenheim and Neethlingshof Estate.

So come early to explore the venues, like the lush gardens of Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards and Knorhoek Wine Farm before settling down for a sunset movie. See the full winelands schedule below, and book your ticket on webtickets.co.za/galileo.
