Beaujolais


This is an entirely distinctive region that lies in the prolongation of Burgundy and is similar in size with a surface area of 22,000 hectares. Extending 55 kilometres from north to south up to the outskirts of Lyon, and 15 kilometres from east to west, the vineyards are divided between 96 communes. The vineyards are an integral part of the landscape here, covering the hills right up to their summits.
