The Best of Local Gippsland Produce
Local produce is at the heart of Cannibal Creek Vineyard, as it is for most of the Gippsland region. We are lucky enough to have access to quality produce. Not only is the quality of these products amazing, but buying local and maintaining a strong relationship with local suppliers ensures that the region continues to grow and thrive. This has proved to be even more important considering recent events. Both the fires in 2019 and COVID pandemic have resulted in hospitality taking a hit.
Gippsland is home to one of the largest growth corridors in Victoria, with the population growing year by year. This, in addition to increased exposure means that there is a higher demand for quality, local produce.
Cannibal Creek is proud to share with you our favourite products that many of you would have sampled at our restaurant our bought at our in-restaurant store.
ON THE MENU
Cannibal Creek Bakehouse – In a 100 year old oven, these guys continue to make delicious fresh sourdough daily, in addition to other beautiful baked goods!
Stone’s Throw – The Extra Virgin Olive Oil pairs beautifully with a thick balsamic. Works brilliantly on a light leaf salad or with some fresh bread.
Sticky Stuckey’s honey – From their strong, malty Banksia, to a milder Messmate, Sticky Stuckey’s range is perfect for all manner of sweet tooths! Perfect on some Dutch carrots.
CHEESE + ACCOMPANIMENTS

Berry’s Creek Cheese – Would highly recommend their Tarwin blue cheese. Goes excellently on a rocket salad with pear and roasted walnuts.
Prom Country Cheese – These are very popular at Cannibal, specifically their sheep cheese products such as their Cheviot Royale!
Rolada – A great accompaniment to any cheese; Rolada provides a variety of different fruit and nut combinations, including date and pistachio, or fig and walnut.
