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.

How to spend a day at the Black Oystercatcher
Deli, pizza and crafts
Head into our shop to create your own lunch from our deli – including farm-fresh bread, meats and more. Or order a delicious wood-fired pizza from the bar counter. You’ll also find a variety of local crafts – like crockery, leather bags, and sensuous beauty products. Find out more.
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.

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.

A wedding to remember

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.
Dedicated to conservation
The property forms part of the Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area (NWSMA), the first venture of its kind in the country. Through the NWSMA, 25 landowners, including some of those wine farms that make up the Agulhas Wine Triangle, are working together to manage their land collectively.
