Plantation, FL – Meet the Team

Peggy Dugan
Store Manager

Peggy has been with Total Wine & More for four years, most recently managing our North Miami store. Prior to joining Total Wine & More, Peggy worked as a Store Manager and District Manager for The Home Depot. Peggy’s love of Cabernet Sauvignon has “spilled” over into other wine interests due to the expanded knowledge she received by traveling to prestigious wineries in California, Spain and France, where she gained a plethora of knowledge that she feels privileged to pass on to our customers.
Alex Shinn, Wine Manager
Alex has been working with Total Wine & More for almost two years. He has become very familiar with our extensive selection of wine, beer, and spirits. Alex has previously done tours in our Boynton Beach and Boca Raton stores. He is looking forward to opening a new store and welcoming new faces into our Plantation location. A fan of all different types of wine, he finds that Old World wines are the most interesting to study and work with, although they certainly are not the only types that show high quality and value. Alex is excited to work with a new team to educate and serve the Plantation area.
Dimitri Draves, Assistant Manager
Dimitri’s passion for traveling and experiencing new cultures, led him to pursue a degree in International Studies from Florida State University. He has traveled throughout Europe and lived in Spain where he fell in love with Spanish Riojas and Flamenco music. His appetite for meeting new people and discovering new and exciting wines is why he is so enthusiastic about joining the Total Wine & More team. He can’t wait to pass on his knowledge and passion for wine to our new Plantation customers.
 
Benny Otero, Assistant Manager
Benny has been with Total Wine & More since 2011. Prior to joining our team, Benny worked as an Assistant Store Manager and Sales Manager for Kohl’s and JC Penney. With 19 years of management experience, he welcomes every day with an upbeat spirit ready to give our customers the best customer service possible. He exudes a passion for wine, spirits, and beer and has built a reputation with our customers as a go-to person to help them with all their beverage needs.
Randi Diamond, Wine Associate

Greg Martinelli, Wine Associate
Greg is new to the Total Wine & More team but not new to the world of wine. He has gained food and wine pairing experience while working in restaurants the past 10 years. Upon graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 2007, he joined a restaurant group where he worked closely with the beverage staff to help update the wine list. This experience, in combination with trips to the Napa Valley, has solidified Greg’s passion for learning more about wine. He enjoys experiencing wines from all over the world but specifically Cabernets and Pinot Noirs from California.
