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.

We’re OPEN from Saturday 16 January 2021 for pizza
and deli meals: 

We’re back to our normal trading times from Saturday 16 January, serving you wood-fired pizza and meal options from our deli. (Due to the COVID-19 regulations, our tasting room and wine shop remain closed.)

Gift shop 


You’ll also find a variety of local crafts at our gift shop – like crockery, leather bags, and sensuous beauty products. Our quality range of products are unique (these are not items you’ll readily find in other stores). That’s why they make for wonderful gifts – either for a loved one, or for yourself.

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.

 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.

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.

Make a booking.

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.

Our venue is spacious and with our large veranda, there's plenty of wonderful open country air all around you. Still, we strongly adhere to COVID-19 regulations - for our safety, as well as yours. We ask that you please wear your mask when not sitting at your table, that you practice social distancing and you continue to sanitise frequently during your stay.
