Fill up your senses

Taste our Black Oystercatcher wine, and Fraser’s Folly craft beer, in our Tasting Room on the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm. The Tasting Room is next to the venue. The building is the original (early 1900) farmstead, and although renovated, still maintains its unique Strandveld character, with historical touches like the exposed original brickwork and wooden beams. A fireplace provides the perfect setting for winter days, while we open up the doors in summer to bring in our cool Cape Agulhas temperatures.

Wine & Beer Tasting and Sales

If you’re keen to taste our range of wine and beers, just let any of our Black Oystercatcher staff know. Our Wine Tasting Manager will introduce you to the tastes and sensations that accompany our cool climate wine and Fraser’s Folly craft beer.

Cool climate wines

WINE TASTINGS

Our grapes, grown in the cool tip of Africa winds in the Agulhas Wine Triangle, are smaller than usual – with more intense flavours as a result. Once the grapes are ripe, they are handpicked, and worked with in the softest possible way. The Black Oystercatcher standard range include five wines (Sauvignon blanc, White Pearl, Rose, Cabernet Merlot and Triton (red blend)) and over the years, Dirk has added a host of reserve wines to the selection. Like the Reserve Sauvignon blanc, the Blanc Fumé, Wild Ferment, the Noble Late and the Méthode Cap Classique. Find out more about our wines

 

What Visitors Say

Great winery

“We were driving by and recognized the name as we just had a bottle of their Sauvignon Blanc at a restaurant last week. We stopped for a tasting and left with a 7 bottle assortment of their wines. The white is my favorite but I liked the Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot blend as well.” – DixiePeach, Kansas City
