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. Enjoy a wine tasting and shop for local crafts and produce in our tasting room and gift shop. And stay over in our self-catering cottages overlooking the biodiversity-rich Agulhas Plain.

OUR RESERVE WINES ARE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

Take a moment to celebrate life with a special wine.

 

FREE DELIVERY on all our Black Oystercatcher Wines!

How to spend a day at the Black Oystercatcher

Deli, pizza and crafts

SHOP AND EAT

Head into our Tasting Room 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 historic Tasting Room

TASTING ROOM

Taste our Black Oystercatcher wine 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.
Find out more.

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. 
Find out more.

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 distinct, small batch beers with serious personality – all under the watchful eye of brewmaster, Fraser Crighton. Find out more.

A wedding to remember

WEDDING VENUE

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. Find out more.

Cottages in the countryside

ACCOMMODATION

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.

Dedicated to conservation

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.
