Cool climate wines


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
