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.
OUR RESERVE WINES ARE NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
Take a moment to celebrate life with a special wine.

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.

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.
Find out more.
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. Find out more.
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. Find out more.
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.
Find out more.
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.
OPEN for essential travel (adhering to the lockdown regulations). Make a booking.
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.
Like so many in the tourism and hospitality sector, these have been 3 uncertain months for us.
