Following a successful launch of Tadashi Agi’s New York Times Best Selling comic, The Drops of God, the staff at Vertical, Inc. and New York-based wine purveyors BottleRocket have come together to bring the wines of DoG to life!
On Wednesday, November 9th, BottleRocket will be hosting a wine tasting featuring many of the wines depicted by Shu Okimoto in this massively popular series. While most of the wines will focus on North American labels, wine and comic connoisseurs alike should find plenty to indulge in this evening as manga and Merlot mingle this evening.
After a brief introduction to the comic and the impact it made on both the comics and wine industries, BottleRocket’s knowledgeable crew will be pouring 6 wines featured in the series. Cheese, conversation and comics will follow on what should be a rare night where comics become reality.
Doors open at 6:00pm this evening, with the pouring starting at around 6:15pm.
Admission will be free and open to the public, however some of the featured wines will be limited so we suggest arriving early to try them all.
Books will also be available for purchase through BottleRocket. (Please make sure to pick up a copy to thank them for hosting this special event.)
