Drops of God

Tomohisa Yamashita (Issei Tomine) and Fleur Geffrier (Camille Léger) in the hit show Drops of God.

Blind testing wine to secure millions 

In the original story, main character Kanzaki travels the world in search of some of the most valuable wine bottles, known as 'the 12 apostles'.

In the new series, which has been given a personal twist, we follow the main characters Issei Tomine (Tomohisa Yamashita) and Camille Léger (Fleur Geffier). When her seemingly ruthless father passes away, he leaves behind the world's largest wine collection in his will. The collection is worth a tremendous fortune. Camille and Issei, who are their father's former pupils, must compete for the inheritance. A competition will be set up to blind test wine and to see who can identify both its name and vintage the fastest.  

The action takes place in Japan, France, and Italy, and it is there you must head to seek out the exquisite wine from Drops of God. 

According to The Drink Business,  there has been a sharp increase in interest in the wines featured in the series, especially in Japan and Korea. (Spoiler alert: The wine list below may contain spoilers, so don't read on if you haven't seen the series yet!)
