A weekly Japanese comic about wine by Shin and Yuko Kibayashi, “teaches more people about wine—and affects more sales—than any other wine publication.” The influential manga series is a dramatic adventure that follows protagonist Shizuku as he learns about wine and deals with the legacy of his father, a famous wine critic, and his adopted brother, a sommelier. The brothers compete, tasting wines, to determine who will inherit their father’s estate – a wine collection featuring 13 heaven blessed wines. The series is so popular in Asia that wine sellers monitor the The Drops of God and stock their shelves accordingly. The series is now available in english on Amazon.
