Manga Sparks Wine Craze in Asia
The Japanese comic book “Kami no Shizuku” translates to “The Drops of God”. It's the story of Shizuku Kanzaki, a wine enthusiast who is on a heroic quest to find the 12 best wines in the world. Described as “The Da Vinci Code” set in a Tokyo bar, the story is part mystery and part richly detailed, surreal wine review.
The curious thing, is that the Drops of God has been creating an explosive new demand for wines in Asia. A mention of a specific wine can boost sales tremendously.
