The Drops of God is a Japanese Manga series about wine. That's right, fancy wine. Today's the first I've heard of it, but it seems like the weekly series matches the ways I think about wine. Down to earth, un-pretentious (I hope), and with lots of visual imagery. Some of the description in just the sample images reminds me of the way my sister-in-law Christine talks about wine. What does the wine invoke? A large room with a leather wingback set in front of a roaring fire. Misty rain outside, someone was smoking a cigar in that chair a few days ago.

Anyone know how I can get my hands on the series? In English, hopefully…
