An Ode to Wine: A Review of Season One for “Drops of God”


Finally got around to watching “Drops of God” which is a mesmerizing series that beautifully blends the world of wine with captivating storytelling. Season one sets the stage for an exhilarating exploration of wine culture, unraveling the complexities of taste, aroma, and history, all while taking the audience on an unforgettable journey.

The show revolves around Shizuku Kanzaki, a young woman estranged from her father, a renowned wine critic. Following her father’s passing, Shizuku embarks on a quest to inherit his father’s vast wine collection by deciphering a series of twelve divine wines known as the “Twelve Apostles.” The intriguing premise immediately grabs your attention and keeps you hooked throughout the entire season.

The character development in season one is commendable. Shizuku’s transformation from a disinterested and inexperienced wine drinker to an ardent disciple of wine is beautifully portrayed. The supporting characters, like Miyabi Shinohara, provide depth and add layers to the story. Their interactions and evolving relationships make the narrative engaging and relatable.

Visually, “Drops of God” delights the senses. The lush vineyards, vibrant wine bottles, and mouthwatering food pairings are portrayed with great attention to detail. The cinematography captures the allure and elegance of wine, creating a feast for the eyes.

However, while the series excels in many aspects, there are a few moments when the pacing feels slightly rushed. Some viewers might desire a deeper exploration of certain storylines or more in-depth explanations of wine terminology. Nonetheless, these minor quibbles do not diminish the overall enjoyment of the series.

Season one of “Drops of God” is an enchanting and immersive journey into the world of wine. It blends education, passion, and a touch of mystery to create a delightful viewing experience. Whether you have a love for wine or simply appreciate well-crafted storytelling, this series will leave you eagerly anticipating the next sip of this intoxicating tale.
