From the cool tip of Africa
From the cool tip of Africa
Right now, we’re near the end of our 2021 harvest season.
We’ve seen that our small, compact berries are packed with the intense flavours and minerality you’ve come to expect from Black Oystercatcher wine.
WELCOME TO THE
The Black Oystercatcher is a family-run wine farm at the cool southernmost tip of Africa.
Our unique region crafts our cool-climate wines, creating penetrating fruit flavours, and a distinctive minerality. But we’re more than a winery: we’re a destination. We offer fresh farm-style snacks from our deli, as well as wood-fired pizza, both enjoyed on our veranda or in our venue. Shop for local crafts and our cool-climate wines and craft beers in our shop. And stay over in our self-catering cottages overlooking the biodiversity-rich Agulhas Plain.
Come and enjoy the Overberg countryside on our spacious Black Oystercatcher veranda, serving you wood-fired pizza and meal options from our deli, overlooking our infinity pool, and the natural world beyond.

Taste our cool-climate wines
The boutique Black Oystercatcher Wines are made from the intensely fruity grapes, formed in Cape Agulhas’ extreme growing conditions. You can taste our range of wines: just ask for a wine tasting, presented by our winemaker or our knowledgeable team in the venue. And buy your favourite from our shop.
Wine tastings and sales: Tuesday to Friday 10:00 to 16:00. Saturday 11:00 to 15:00. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
Don’t forget the craft beer
Fraser’s Folly craft beer is brewed on the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm. We converted an old shed into the brewhouse – where we brew distinct, small batch beers with serious personality – all under the watchful eye of brewmaster, Fraser Crighton.
Craft beer sales: Tuesday to Friday 10:00 to 16:00. Saturday 11:00 to 15:00. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

Cottages in the countryside
The cottages overlook our veggie gardens and the striking shades of green of the Agulhas Plain. Each cottage is semi-equipped (cottages have kitchen utensils and a microwave, but no oven). Enjoy activities like birding, hiking or cycling; or simply settle down to revel in the fresh air and country lifestyle found on a working farm.
Take a Wildlife Tour
Take a Sunrise or Sunset Wildlife Guided Tour through the Black Oystercatcher farm and surrounds, in a cruise organised by the Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area (we’re a member). These tours take you into a secret lake expanse and game area where you could see Buffalo, Hippo, Bontebok, Eland and a range of other big and small game, as well as wetland birds.
