Black Oystercatcher Food & Wine Evening at Hartford House
About Black Oystercatcher
Wine producer, Dirk Human, is the owner, winemaker and viticulturist of the Black Oystercatcher boutique wines. The Human Family has farmed successfully on the Moddervlei farm, where the Black Oystercatcher winery and restaurant are housed, for generations.
The farm is situated between the small towns of Elim, Bredasdorp and Agulhas, in the Overberg region in South Africa. In 1998, Dirk and his family decided to live their dream – by planting vineyards on the property. Dirk’s knowledge of the land with its sand plains, wetlands, extensive limestone and calcareous dunes enabled him to select the perfect location for the Black Oystercatcher’s vineyards.
