Kanonkop – family-run to the Top of South African Wines

The family Sauer runs the winery Kanonkop in the fourth generation by now. Originally, J W Sauer, a cabinet minister of the South African parliament, had bought it. His son Paul Oliver Sauer took over later, supported by the rugby legend Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee. In 1980, the now-famous winemaker Beyers Truter joined the team and led Kanonkop to the top of South African wine producers. Today, mostly Abrie Beeslaar plays a great role in the constant success of the winery. By the way, the name Kanonkop goes back to ‘kopje’ which means ‘small hill’. From this hill, a canon used to be fired when merchant ships arrived in the close-by bay. This shot informed the people living in the inland and they loaded their carts, went to the harbour and offered their goods for sale.
