Taste-making manga nominated for contribution to global wine business

Along with a list of critics, consultants, and academics, brother and sister manga creators Yuko and Shin Kibayashi (aka Tadashi Agi) have been nominated to receive a 10 for 10 Wine Intelligence Business Award, which will honor ten people for their contribution to the wine industry over the last decade.


Yuko and Shin Kibayashi's Drops of God, published in North America by Vertical Inc., has been credited with popularizing wine and significantly influencing sales in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.


Wine Intelligence said the awards were designed "to celebrate the achievements of those individuals who have made a significant contribution to the business of wine over the past 10 years." The 10 winners will be announced at a series of 10 events hosted by Wine Intelligence between March and November this year, in locations across Europe, Asia, North and South America.
