Often referred to as the “City of Wine”, Bordeaux boasts a vibrant rugby culture that runs deep in the veins of its residents. The local rugby team, Union Bordeaux Bègles, proudly represents the city in the Top 14 league. Match days at the Chaban-Delmas stadium are a festive spectacle, where the citizens and fans unite to cheer on their beloved team.
This passion for rugby extends beyond the stadium, creating a strong community that celebrates the sport’s rich traditions. From lively pre-match gatherings to spirited discussions about game strategies, Bordeaux’s love for rugby is a sight to behold.
And the city has much more to offer. Renowned for its world-class wineries and vineyards, Bordeaux is a dream come true for wine enthusiasts. Indeed, the picturesque vineyards in the surrounding region produce some of the finest wines in the world.
But Bordeaux’s fame extends beyond wine. The city’s historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a testament to its rich history and architectural splendour. Stroll along the Garonne River, admire the 18th-century facades, and explore the Place de la Bourse with its mesmerizing water mirror —these are just a few of the cultural gems that await you.
