This is a wonderful manga sharing the knowledge about wine, and how quirky it behaves soon as it is exposed to air. This is beautifully illustrated, not to mention very descriptive when it comes to just taking one sip of wine. Its a fun read about one man's quest to retrieve his late father's legacy, the so-called Drops of God.
