Description
Shizuku Kanzaki is the son of a recently deceased, world renowned wine critic named Yutaka Kanzaki. In order to take ownership of his father's legacy, an extensive wine collection featuring some of the most rare labels of the last 30 years, he must find 13 wines, known as the "Twelve Apostles" and the heaven sent "Drops of God" that his father described in his will. But despite being an only child, Shizuku is not alone in this unique wine hunt. He has a competitor. Issei Tomine, a renowned young wine critic, was recently adopted into the Kanzaki family and is also vying for this most rare of prizes.

La Revue du vin de France, the most prestigious wine magazine in France, has awarded this series with the "Special Award of the Year" in 2010.

Bacchus' Gift   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

A meticulously researched homage to wine and its culture.
The British wine magazine Decanter called it "arguably the most influential wine publication for the past 20 years" and included the authors in their "Power List" 2009 as the 50th most powerful figures of the wine industry. And indeed, the KIBAYASHI-siblings did their homework so well that even wine connoisseurs may gain some new insights into the different brands', vintages' and regions' history.
The plot is simple and serves as a vehicle for the manga's numerous explanations.

Highly educational/ explicitly instructive: ★★★★

This manga is good. The art is suitable, and I love how imagery is used in describing the wines. The writer does a good job blending the information on wine into an interesting storyline.

This one is indeed a lovable manga. It's very unique, well knowledge, and have good artwork.
It make me paying interest in wine tasting, but sadly i don't have money to buy such things.
It remained me of Hikaru no Go, one of unique and best manga ever written. Because both stories are unique. And I love that!
i'm sure this series is one that I would never quit to read it.

The wine tasting expressions are quite exaggerated like in Yakitate Japan. It's quite formal this way, or one can say aesthetic, likening wine to painting..

I always find mangas with unique storyline interesting to read. And this is definitely one, ever read a manga about wine tasting ? Remind me about Glass Mask, you dont need a lot of romance or actions to make a good series
It surprising that people notice this series so late, if my Jap better, this would be one of many series i want to make its release faster.
BTW, its terminologys can be a challenge to readers have low vocabulary .

I for one, hope we get to work on this one more. I'm perfectly fine with my part in it, however, finding a translator seems to be a bit tough. There's a lot of very specific terminology in the dialogue. Not surprising since it's all about wine. bigrazz

I'm not fond of wine at all, but I love a good manga. And this is a good manga. Plenty of tension despite the lack of shonen action, good art, and an interesting storyline. Looking forward to more.
