Autumn 2013 in full swing!
As the later, lazy sun peaks its bright face over the green rolling hills, of the Overberg, the
mornings bring with it an icy chill as the last colourful Autumn leaves fall from the vines before
pruning. Come and enjoy the last of the warm Autumn afternoons at the Black Oystercatcher
Black Oystercatcher is a family-run wine farm at the cool
southernmost tip of Africa, from where the boutique Black
Oystercatcher wines are made.
Black Oystercatcher Wines, part of the Elim wine ward found on the Agulhas Plain of South
Africa, is also home to the Black Oystercatcher Restaurant.
The boutique wines offer crisp yet elegant, fruity flavours, formed by the cool coastal winds,
the unique Elim soil and our distinctive wine-making philosophy.

"We were told we had to
stop at the Black
Oystercatcher on our way
from Cape Agulhas to
Stanford. What good advice
that was. We didn't have
time for a meal but their
tapas looked just delectable
and very fresh. We bought
great tasting wine. Friendly
staff. The venue is just
stunning and will be a
definite stop for us along
with a meal - next time! ”

There are currently road works taking place on the road between
Gansbaai and Elim, through Baardskeerdersbos.
We are very excited about the development this new tarred road will bring to the area. Please have a look at our map to consider an
alternative route or contact Gansbaai Tourism Office for an up to date report on the road. +27 (0) 28 3841439
