WELCOME TO THE
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.
Join our Black Oystercatcher Wine Club.
There 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.
AND HERE’S ONE MORE REASON: BE THE FIRST TO TASTE OUR SAUVIGNON BLANC 2018
It will be released at the Black Oystercatcher Summer, Wine & Craft Beer Festival (26-30 December).
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.

A fresh dining experience
Enjoy a fresh dining experience, set in a relaxed country atmosphere at our Restaurant. Here fresh food, complimenting our boutique wines, is prepared to order and enjoyed at leisure. We serve produce straight from our own garden that grows as the seasons dictate. Booking essential: +27 (0) 28 482 1618.
Mon – Fri from 9:00 – 17:00. Sat from 10:00 – 14:30.
Our historic Tasting Room
Taste our Black Oystercatcher wine and Fraser’s Folly craft beer in our Tasting Room – including our unique reserve range. The building forms part of the original farmstead, dating back to the early 1900s. And it still retains its exposed original brickwork.

Open Tue to Sun from 11:00 – 14:30.
A wedding to remember
We know and understand how to celebrate true love and the beginnings of a new and exciting journey – as partners. Like our Black Oystercatcher birds that pair for life, we also believe in partnership. Together we’ll create a truly unforgettable day for you.
Local crafts and produce
In our Gift Shop (in the Tasting Room), you’ll find a variety of local products and crafts – like home-made crockery, stylish leather bags, and a range of sensuous beauty products. Our products are carefully selected – showcasing the region’s quality goods.

Cottages in the countryside
The cottages overlook our veggie gardens and the striking shades of green of the Agulhas Plain. Each cottage is fully equipped. 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.
