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. Shop for local crafts and our cool-climate wines and craft beers in our shop. And stay over in our self-catering cottages overlooking the biodiversity-rich Agulhas Plain.

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.

Take a Wildlife Tour


Take a Sunrise or Sunset Wildlife Guided Tour through the Black Oystercatcher farm and surrounds, in a cruise organised by the Nuwejaars Wetlands Special Management Area (we’re a member). These tours take you into a secret lake expanse and game area where you could see Buffalo, Hippo, Bontebok, Eland and a range of other big and small game, as well as wetland birds.

We ask that you please wear your mask when not sitting at your table, that you practice social distancing and you continue to sanitise frequently during your stay.


Black Oystercatcher Sauvignon Blanc 2021
– now available 


Our 2021 Sauvignon Blanc has just been released. Experience the gooseberry and blackcurrant aromas of this wine, underpinned by notable tropical tones. The exceptional flavours of this vintage were crafted in particular by our dry conditions last year, resulting in an even lower yield than normal, and small berries with concentrated and more intense flavours. The grapes were harvested in three separate hand pickings, with extended lees contact, adding to the crisp after tones and lingering, mineral mouthfeel you’ve come to know from our southernmost vineyards.

We normally release our new Sauvignon Blanc vintage in December. But due to strong demand for our wine, our 2021 vintage is available NOW from our online shop or from the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm.

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.
