Our approach to winemaking is based on the traditional philosophy and practices of the 'Old World'. We believe that hand picking optimally ripe fruit and then gently guiding it through vinification with as little intervention as possible allows us to produce elegant wines with flavour and structure that authentically reflect the special place they come from - wines that really are "Handmade from Central Otago"
Folding Hill was established by Tim and Nikki Kerruish, in partnership with Anne Charlesworth. 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.
