Founded by Eric Danch and Catherine Granger, Danch and Granger Selections is the independent offspring of Blue Danube Wine Company, a pioneering importer of wines from Central and Eastern Europe.
Blue Danube Wine Co. owners and founders Frank Dietrich and Zsuzsa Molnar tirelessly managed their company from 2002 until 2019. Above and beyond taking countless risks and making countless investments, they have championed a part of the wine world with an unmatched focus. They are now enjoying a well-deserved retirement.
In cooperation with Frank and Zsuzsa, we will continue Blue Danube’s mission and honor its legacy, but Danch and Granger is a different company from top to bottom. Combining their complementary skills, Eric is responsible for the company's sales and portfolio while Catherine provides the financial and business structure for the company.
Our focus will be centered on (but not limited to) Hungary and its immediate neighbors: Slovakia, Serbia, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, and Romania. We will dig deeper into fewer relationships while at the same time opening up new appellations to the US market and putting an emphasis on organic farming, native grapes, and low intervention winemaking. Because we’ve been fortunate enough to hear the stories, learn the history, taste the wines, and meet the people that Frank and Zsuzsa introduced us to over the past 8 years, we have an informed perspective on what is happening with the next and future generations. They will be the focus of Danch & Granger Selections.
