The company was founded July 1st 1946 by Fritz Paustian senior. It all began with an import license for Hungarian wines. The young Fritz Paustian, then a reserve lieutenant in the Danish army, used empty Red Cross lorries on their return trip to Denmark, to transport the first wines to Denmark from Hungary. At that time customers were very keen on working with wine merchants since the supply of wines were very limited and demands high.
With that foundation, the business quickly grew. Through numerous takeovers of prestigious established companies in the Danish wine trade, Taster Wine expanded both its business and customer base, becoming a significant player in the market able to compete on the highest possible level, supplying wine and spirits to all sectors of the market, and thus evolving to the company we know today.
