Zooming ahead to a story arc that presents New World wines, this special volume of The Drops of God features scenes set in Napa Valley and labels from outside the traditional European production centers.
In the New World arc, the focus shifts from the European wines found in most Tokyo wine bars to the wine cellars of Napa Valley and the wine makers of Australia. The next apostle is destined to change the perspective of wine drinkers everywhere as it brings hope to the future of wine. Shizuku takes off for a trip across the Pacific to Chile before heading out to Oz in search of a sensational Shiraz while Issei and his new drinking partner find the naunaces of Syrah in Northern California.
