The principle partners of Folding Hill are Tim and Nikki Kerruish, Hywel and Kim Lloyd and Anne Charlesworth.

Tim and Hywel met and became friends in 1984 at Liverpool University Medical School . Their first vintage was in 1986 when they started making wines using grape concentrate in their Toxteth flat.  Tim's main roles in Folding Hill are managing the vineyard, assisting with winemaking and sales and marketing. He also currently works as a Consultant in Emergency Medicine whilst Hywel is a General Practitioner in a busy practice. Kim is a Paediatric Nurse and Anne is a retired Public Health Consultant.

The really hard work is done by Nikki who combines a career in Bioethics and looking after 4 children with all the accounting and compliance needs of the company.

Viticulture is by award winning viticulturalist James Dicey and his Grape Vision crew , with winemaking being headed by the experienced and very talented winemaker Fred Riends.
