A TIMELESS TASTE OF AFRICA
Bonang Matheba launched her very own luxury beverage brand with the introduction of the House of BNG and its Brut and Brut Rosé Méthode Cap Classiques (MCCs).
In her latest endeavour, Queen B has also become the first black woman to become a member of the Cap Classique Producers Association.
“The House of BNG has been a passion project of mine for a long time. It’s no secret that champagne is my favourite drink, so getting the chance to make my own MCC was an opportunity I couldn’t miss out on!” says Bonang of her latest venture.
Known as the “Champagne Queen”, Bonang made a specific decision to make an MCC with Cape grapes rather than a champagne (made from region-specific French grapes) and the House of BNG (which is an acronym for Bonang) was born.
Over two years in the making, the House of BNG involved the careful crafting of a truly unique blend by acclaimed Cape Wine Master Jeff Grier, selecting the finest grapes from across the renowned Stellenbosch wine-producing region. To suit her taste preferences, Bonang also collaborated in the creative process, from advising on the balance between bitter and sweet to the size of the bubbles.
