With a surface area of nearly 20,000 hectares, Beaujolais is the natural geographic continuation of viticultural Burgundy. Bordered to the east by the Saône River and to the west by the foothills of the Massif Central, Beaujolais is 15 km wide and extends nearly 55 km down to the northern tip of Lyon.The main Crus are situated in the upper-Beaujolais, to the north of the appellation at an average altitude of 300 metres above sea-level and generally on steep inclines. The southern Beaujolais, land of the Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages appellations, is made up of more clay-rich soil with calcareous rock.The vineyards are mostly south-east facing, enjoying prolonged sunshine.
