Got info on an odd wine guide, The Drops of God by Tadashi Agi och Shu Okimoto – a manga comic wine guide. The two first parts are now available in English, I made sure to buy them emediently.
In short, the story is about two wine interested brothers embroiled in an inheritance dispute over who should take over his father’s estate, including a wine cellar with some of the rarest wines in the world. In order to inherit this,however, the brothers first must find the12 wines known as the 12 apostles and the ultimate wine known as the drops of God. Through their adventures you learn a lot about wines, wine history and various wine regions – a little different but a well-proven pedagogy; to learn through comics – I remember the Swedish comic magazine the Phantom, by Lee Falk, that I used to read during the 80’s. The adventures often took place within historic events and through this I actually picked up a lot on them and – as a kind of bonus – I learned by default!
I love the idea of mixing comics and wine – if the result is great is to be seen/read – so I’ll get back to you all about these as soon as I’ve hade the opportunity to read them more thoroughly!
