IOL Entertainment can confirm that Bonang Matheba has not bought Rust en Vrede Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.
The Twitterverse has been in a tailspin on whether or not Bonang Matheba bought Rust en Vrede Wine Estate in Stellenbosch.
What initially sent the everyone into a speculation cycle was Ms Matheba posting pictures of herself at the wine estate on her Instagram Stories, captioning one of the pictures on her timeline with "I’ve always wanted a vineyard".

Tweeples then took these posts as confirmation that Ms Matheba had, in fact, bought the prestigious wine farm with #GirlsWithVineyards trending shortly afterwards.

We can now confirm that the Queen B did, in fact, not buy the wine farm but that she will be spending more time in the wine lands with a new venture.
We reached out to the C.S.A Executive Director David Phillips and he stated that the claims are untrue and that the details on the upcoming venture would be released soon.
“Ms Matheba has not purchased Rust & Vrede, she was purely enjoying lunch at the establishment. However, we can confirm that she will be spending more time in the wine lands in the near future. More details will be revealed soon.”
We'll all have to wait and see what this new venture is going to be.
