Dick Benjamin – A good man and pioneer

We were shocked to hear the passing of Dick Benjamin, owner of Wine World in North Augusta. He was a good man and a local pioneer into wine in the CSRA.

Dick was the head of the local Tasters Guild and started Wine World. He had a great passion for wine and people. His knowledge of wine was unsurpassed. He will be missed by many and respected by all.
