"Through the dramas of their wine-drinking characters, the (Tadashi Agi) instructs readers on how to taste wine. It's hilarious, for sure, when a young woman swoons over a man's decanting skills, but it's also a great way to draw attention to the technical proficiency of a beautiful pour without getting too technical. And that's what's truly extraordinary about Drops of God: It makes learning about wine--which, let's face it, can be a totally tedious thing for the non-obsessed--really fun... Seriously, this is juicy stuff!" -- GILT "Absolute page-turner... It's the sweeping two-page illustrations of taste-transporting moments (a shirt-tearing jam by rock band Queen, a maiden fleeing through strawberry fields) that better capture wine's great allure than a thousand dry scribblings on history and weather conditions." --Time Out New York "An almost psychedelically beautiful work... It's like Speed Racer crossed with Wine Spectator." --The Daily Dish (LA Times) "Visually stunning and effortlessly entertaining... To top it off, reading Drops is a trippy literary experience... Don't be surprised if you crush this book in one night. It's pretty impossible to put down once you pick it up." --Bottlenotes (The Daily Sip) "I have already ordered the second volume (out in December) and I guess that in terms of reviews that is a definitive statement." --Wine Psych "Presents some complex wine topics in an easy to understand manner, without talking down to the consumer... I urge all wine lovers to take a look, with an open mind, at The Drops of God. Give it a chance and you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it."
