JOIN OUR JOURNEY
You’ve told us before. About the complexity in our Sauvignon blancs. The layers of flavours and aromas. And how they balance with each other. Now we want to take this a step further – with you. To together uncover the Secrets of Sauvignon blanc at our cool tip of Africa.
It’s a winemaking journey. One where we test our unique terroir – in particular, our 3 main soil types from which our vines draw their strength, and flavour their berries. We start with our 2017 Sauvignon blanc harvest. And with your involvement, we end with three Sauvignon blancs, made with the grapes from each of these different soil types, at the end of the year.
Join us, every step of this winemaking adventure. Follow the quest here.
“We’re keen to keep changing, improving, better understanding the needs of those who visit us.
So for us the Black Oystercatcher is a journey – one that will never end as long as our dream remains alive. Our new restaurant and venue is only one step along this journey.”
– Dirk Human
The result? We’re building a new section – to serve as our restaurant and wedding venue.
The new venue will retain the essence of the Black Oystercatcher: a place to relax, enjoy the views, and sip great wine with family and friends. The restaurant will be built just behind the old verandah section, overlooking the infinity pool, and the vast Agulhas Plain landscape behind it.
If you loved the old restaurant – converted from its original use many, many years ago as a dairy parlour and stable for horses, then not to worry.
The old restaurant building remains untouched, and becomes our new wine-tasting venue. Until the launch of our new venue, it also remains our restaurant. And from here we’ll still serve you quality dishes in the fresh, clear Overberg countryside, with our menu crafted around the fresh veggies and herbs offered by each season.
We’ve set ourselves a pretty tough deadline: by 5 November 2016, our new restaurant area will welcome you, and become your new home of quality cuisines.
For our small team, this is #BOCHistory. And we’re excited to share the journey with you. So over the next 8 weeks, we’ll keep you in the loop as we progress. We’re bound to enjoy many successes, and many challenges too. And you’ll be part of this – every step of the way.
