History

Chateau Canon was originally part of the Clos Saint Martin vineyards in the 1700s.

In 1760, when the Saint Emilion vineyard was only 13 hectares, a fraction of what it is today, it was purchased by privateer Jacques Kanon. Kanon expanded both the vineyard, estate and constructed the original chateau, selling the estate to wine merchant Raymond Fontemoing after owning it for only a decade.

In 1853, the name of the estate was officially changed to Chateau Canon.
