Bonang is known for her love of bubbles, so when news broke on Monday that the media personality had launched her very own range of Brut and Rosé Methode Cap Classique (MCC), House of BNG, it seemed to be a perfect fit.
“The House of BNG has been a passion project of mine for a very long time. It’s no secret that champagne is my favourite drink, so creating my own MCC was an opportunity I could not miss out on,” Matheba says.
“I made the choice to create an MCC with Cape grapes, rather than a champagne made from region-specific French grapes.”
After much build-up and fanfare on social media over the weekend and a blunder by Woolworths – the retail giant accidentally uploaded an image of the bottles on its website last week – Bonang took us inside her latest business venture, which has been two years in the making.

It seems like Bonang and Somizi have kissed and made up, with the former best mates posing happily together for pics at the star-studded launch.
Here are three important things you should know about the House of BNG.
- She’s partnered exclusively with Woolworths
Keeping their long-running partnership flowing, Bonang has once again teamed up with Woolworths in an exclusive distribution deal that will see the MCC initially only available at select Woolworths stores nationwide, as well as online.
2. How much does it cost?
Significantly pricier than other locally rated MCC brands like Graham Beck, Simonsig and Krone, a bottle of Queen B’s MCC will sets you back R399.

3. You will be able to purchase it from other retailers… at some point
While Bonang is yet to reveal precise timeframes, she says House of BNG MCC’s would be available at competing retailers at a later stage.
