The Beaujolais region lies on the hills and plains located just north of the city of Lyon. The appellation actually falls almost entirely within the department, or province, of the Rhône, though its affairs are administered by the department of Saône-et-Loire, which includes a small but meaningful part of the appellation as well as the Mâconnais region, the southern half of Burgundy.
