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. That means we offer quality meals – served in our Restaurant, and prepared as the seasons dictate. Enjoy a wine tasting and shop for local crafts and produce in our Tasting Room & Gift Shop. And stay over in our Self-Catering Cottages overlooking the biodiversity-rich Agulhas Plain.

How to spend a day at the Black Oystercatcher
Taste our cool-climate wines
The boutique Black Oystercatcher Wines are made from the intensely fruity grapes, formed in Cape Agulhas’ extreme growing conditions. The constant coastal winds, marginal soils and unique geology create our compact berries, and ultimately our wines.
