Plot Summary: Shizuku Kanzaki works for a Japanese beer company and is the son of legendary wine critic Yutaka Kanzaki. Ironically, Shizuku loathes wine out of spite for his father's obsession and his childhood experiences of doing absurd things to refine his senses for wine. One day, Shizuku receives word that his father has passed away and is summoned to the family home to hear his father's will. At the hearing, a wine critic by the name of Issei Tomine appears, claiming to be Yutaka's recently adopted son and is in line for inheriting Yutaka's estate, wealth and esteemed wine collection. In order to determine who will receive the inheritance, the late Yutaka made a competition for the two; to identify and describe 13 different wines laid out by him known as the 12 Apostles and the "Drops of God". Much to Shizuku's chagrin, he accepts the terms in order to make sure Tomine doesn't claim his father's fortune, only to become enticed by the world of wine along the way.
