Question: Are you aware of an Asian cartoon mentioning wine?
Answer: Suggest you must be thinking of the popular hit comic series “The Drops of God” by two Japanese manga authors. It was a lot of fun because they selected “The Twelve Apostles” of wine with two brothers searching around the world to find them. They picked some classic wines including Les Amoureuses in Chambolle-Musigny by Roumier, Chateau Palmer, Barolo Cannubi from Sandrone and Chateau d’Yquem but not always from the very best vintages. The series provoked an interesting discussion in Asia on the specific wines chosen and and certainly helped their sales. However, most important of all it encouraged consumers to seek out and find their own special “Drops of God” bottle. Have you found yours? For more details check the series out online.
