The geographical area of the “Beaujolais” extends along the eastern edge of the Massif Central between the Saône river to the east and the Beaujolais mountains to the west. Located in the Rhône and Saône-et-Loire departments, it is the southern extension of wine-growing Burgundy. The vineyard begins beyond the town of Mâcon and extends over a length of 50 kilometres to the Monts du Lyonnais on the outskirts of Lyon.
From east to west, over a width of about 15 kilometres, the vineyard covers the slopes and hills with rounded ridges that climb in stages from the Saône plain to the Beaujolais mountains in the west. The vineyard backing onto the eastern edge of the Massif Central is planted between 180 meters and 550 meters above sea level. More about Beaujolais
