Love Actually under the stars at Anthonij Rupert Wyne

If you loved the box office hit, Love Actually, then you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to see it again. The Galileo Open Air Cinema, in collaboration with Anthonij Rupert Wyne, will be screening this romantic favourite at the estate on Saturday, 19 December and it promises to be a Christmas inspired night filled with stars and laughter.

Who can forget Hugh Grant showing off his questionable dance moves in which he plays the role of British Prime Minister, or heartbroken Colin Firth, the frustrated writer, who falls madly in love with his Portuguese housekeeper? Relive these movie memories as you sip on superb estate wines while enjoying delicious picnic treats.

The sprawling lawn of the Anthonij Rupert Tasting Room is the venue forThe Galileo’s larger-than-life movie screen, providing ample room to enjoy your picnic with the majestic Drakenstein Mountains as the backdrop. Secure parking will also be provided, which is within walking distance of the picnic area. An elegant marquee will be erected to represent a marketplace feel, allowing visitors the opportunity to shop for their picnic ingredients. These include pre-packed cheese and charcuterie platters, a selection of freshly prepared salad tubs, deliciously sweet and fresh strawberries from the estate, freshly baked artisanal breads, chicken liver pâtéand estate cured olives. For those with a sweet tooth, best you make space in your basket for the gourmet cupcakes. Special pre-packed picnic boxes will be available to purchase for the young ones.

What would a picnic be without wine or MCC? A selection of estate wines as well as the popular L’Ormarins Brut will be available to purchase and enjoy whilst watching the movie. A perfect way to celebrate the start of the festive season.

Gates open at 6pm, allowing ample time to shop, mingle and take in the beauty of the surroundings before the movie starts at 8:15pm.
