Enjoying Wine and Beer in the Augusta GA area

A Fond Farewell to Wine World

The Wine World staff. Some of the finest people I know

It was a joyous and sad night as friends gathered at Wine World for a last send off. Saturday night was a potluck dinner with lots of wine with friends sharing food and wine. It was a great evening. One of the first tastings I covered was at Wine World back in 2009. Several friends I’ve gotten to know over the years were there for my first tasting and tonight for the last.

I think back at all of the seminars, tastings, and visits to the best wine shop in the area. I think back fondly of Dick and Sally Benjamin. Dick taught me how to properly pronounce Gewurztraminer and Sally always made sure I was properly introduced at their seminars as “Dan of THE Bottle Report.” I was glad to get to know Andrew when he took over after Dick’s passing. He is proof that Sally and Dick’s wine knowledge has been passed on. I will miss all of the staff at Wine World. They always welcomed me with a smile and heartfelt welcome.

Dale had a surprise birthday celebration

Saturday night was a nice sendoff but they will still be open for a few more days with wines still off at 30%.
