CANNIBAL CREEK vineyard
We are an award winning, single vineyard winery, cellar door and restaurant located about an hour east of Melbourne, on the granite filled fringe of western Gippsland. You will find us nestled in a greenbelt valley of high rainfall and rich soil farming land just beyond the urban sprawl, where the air becomes fresher and the distinct granite range of Mount Cannibal looms into view.
We are family owned, from planting the vines 20 years ago to tending the vines by hand today on a property that is still our family home.
We have a total vineyard area of approximately 5 hectares comprising pinot noir, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, merlot and cabernet sauvignon. We pick and tend the vines by hand, we use sustainable soil nourishment methods and cultural practices to ensure the finest quality grapes and wine.
Our range includes sparkling blanc de blancs, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay, pinot noir, merlot, cabernet merlot, cabernet sauvignon and vin de liqueur. Chardonnay and pinot noir also are available as a premium reserve. All our wine is grown and made onsite, as natural as possible, with minimal intervention.
In 2016 we opened an architect designed Restaurant and Cellar Door for a complete destination dining experience. We offer a changing produce driven menu made personally and from scratch by Chef Philippe Desrettes. He uses slow, traditional technique to make honest, flavour-filled food, inspired by produce from Gippsland, the style of wine we make and his own French heritage.
More than 90% of what we serve in our restaurant is local, including a little grown by us. It’s our way of life out here: real connections with the people and stories behind what we eat and drink.
