According to Nederburg spokesperson, Nicola Coubrough, the winery’s sponsorship of the Celeb Feasts with Zola is an extension of its collaboration with some of South Africa’s leading foodie personalities.     

“Over the years, we have teamed up with other top food talents. These include David Higgs, who took Nederburg wines to Europe in 2015 where he cooked for the Tour de France maiden Africa cycling team - Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, of which Nederburg is the official wine sponsor for the fourth consecutive year.
