Cannibal Creek Vineyard is located in the foothills of the Black Snake Ranges in the West Gippsland region of Victoria, Australia. Their grapes are hand picked and their wines are crafted with a minimal amount of handling to produce a traditional style, premium wine.

Cannibal Creek Vineyard was originally a dairy property bordering Cannibal Creek. Cannibal Creek (a tributary of the Bunyip River) formed the Eastern boundary of the block and it seemed right, due to the interesting history of the creek's name, to call the property after the creek. The story goes that the original pastoral selection of Crown land in 1846 was called “The Connabul Run” after the first lessees of the land. Over the years the name was corrupted to Cannibal and first appeared on local maps in the late 1890's. The name, however, invariably induces much wild speculation!

Consisting of 100 acres, the family bought the farm from the last dairy farmer in 1988. The property was no longer a viable enterprise for a dairy farm and on purchasing the property Terry and Kath Hardiker ran beef cattle for may years until the decision was made to plant a vineyard. Pat and Kirsten returned from Western Australian in 1997 and together they planted 9 acres of vines 4 acres of Chardonnay and 5 acres of Pinot Noir and the following year put in another 3 acres made up of Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cannibal Creek's cellar door is currently open 7 days a week 11am until 5 pm. Except Christmas day. They are currently planning to build a new cellar door. At this stage they do not have food or a restaurant.
