The Red Squirrel Story 

Red Squirrel was born in July 2012, specialising in wines made from native or just downright unusual grape varieties. Traditional wines endangered by the spread of 'international varieties'. In a nutshell, red squirrels not grey squirrels.

We seek out bottles from new regions, re-emerging regions and forgotten regions. Wines that tell a story, are woven into the history of their region, or just breaking the mould in a 'red squirrel' sort of way. We also like wines that look as good as they taste, and taste as good as they look. So we love good packaging, and even design some ourselves.

Nowadays Red Squirrel is one of the fastest growing specialist wine importers in Britain, supplying the public and trade with some very exciting bottles made by lovely people, and always with a big smile on our face.
