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. Taste for yourself during a visit to the Black Oystercatcher Wine Farm.

What Visitors Say
“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
