Is now available FOR THE FIRST TIME on our Black Oystercatcher online shop.

That means you can now have Fraser's Folly craft beer delivered straight to your door.

Black Oystercatcher is a family-run wine farm at the cool southernmost tip of Africa.

Here the boutique Black Oystercatcher Wines are made from the intensely fruity grapes, formed in Cape Agulhas’ extreme growing conditions. And having farmed at Cape Agulhas for generations, we, the Human family, know these conditions well. We use the constant coastal winds, our marginal soils and the unique geology to grow our small compact berries. The result? Top quality cool climate wines with penetrating, fruit flavours and a distinctive minerality.

Join our Black Oystercatcher Wine Club.
T
here are loads of reasons to join – like access to exclusive wines, pre-releases and early bird access to our event tickets.

As a #BOCWineClub member, you’ll also join an exclusive gathering of wine lovers. Together you’ll accompany founder and winemaker Dirk Human on his winemaking journey, crafting our cool-climate favourites here at the cool tip of Africa.

We’re more than a winery

BOUTIQUE WINES

Our farm, situated between the small towns of Elim, Bredasdorp and L’Agulhas, in the Overberg region in South Africa, is also home to the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, Tasting Room & Gift Shop, Wedding Venue and self-catering Cottages. And now a craft brewery, Fraser’s Folly.

We also love the land and natural environment – and do all we can to protect it.

Just because we’re in the business of winemaking, doesn’t mean we don’t also like craft beer.

CRAFT BEER

We’ve always been big fans of the most southerly craft brewery, Fraser’s Folly. And so, when the opportunity came about to partner with Fraser’s Folly, we took it. The result? Well, we now operate a craft brewery!

 At the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant, we live by the season.

RESTAURANT

We serve fresh produce that grows in our own garden as the seasons dictate. As a result, we offer a fresh dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. The seasons also determine the mood at this Cape Agulhas restaurant: the refreshing sea breeze will cool you down in summer, or enjoy our cozy log fires in the winter months.

Open Tue to Sun from 11:00 – 14:30. Booking essential: Book a Table

The Black Oystercatcher Wedding Venue

“Thanks again for a lovely time at Black Oystercatcher on the weekend. Your cottages are very comfortable. The food was delicious and the kids had a wonderful time picking some veggies from your garden. I really enjoyed the peace and quiet.” The Sharp Family

Our land has been dedicated to conservation

CONSERVATION

The Black Oystercatcher’s philosophy is to work the land with the least possible interference, in the most natural way. So we’re a founding member of the Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area – the first conservation venture of its kind in South Africa. The Agulhas Plain is also a renowned birding destination. The Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm itself is home to a number of extraodinary bird species. Like the Red-chested Flufftail, found close to the Waagschaalvlei on the Black Oystercatcher farm.
