Wine novice Shizuku Kanzaki has defeated his rival, up-and-coming wine critic, Issei Tomine in their first of twelve wine hunting trials to find the Drops of God. By the slightest of margins, he was able to distinguish a variance in vintage to capture the First Apostle - 2001 Georges Roumier Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses. Now with his home safely returned and a gained appreciation for the nuances and personal connections people have with wine, Shizuku is now prepared to take on another challenge.
Now Shizuku has to utitlize all his abilitiesto take on a determined and humiliated Issei, as they both go forth in search of a particularly capricious Bordeaux. Yutaka Kanzaki laid down a very task with the First Apostle; this Second will be a statement to test the mettle of both contestants.
