WELCOME TO THE

BLACK OYSTERCATCHER

Summer is here…

And it’s a time to swap the work week for a festive, and well-earned break. Here at the Black Oystercatcher, it’s our favourite time of year. It’s a time when friends and family reconnect in our magical, Overberg countryside. Where friends sip cool-climate wine, taste quality meals, while children cool down in our infinity pool. And where patrons can buy fantastic – and unusual gifts in our shop. For our festive season, we want to make your trip to our destination as easy as possible. To make your stay with us a memorable day. So we’ve connected with a shuttle service operating from Agulhas daily.

More about the shuttle service.

The Black Oystercatcher has teamed up with a shuttle service operating from Agulhas and Struisbaai daily – to make your visit to our destination a safe and fun experience.

The trip will cost R2000 for a maximum of 15 people.

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

BOUTIQUE 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

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 the only English-style craft beer in South Africa, under the watchful eye of brewmaster, Fraser Crighton.
