I was mentally tongue-tied from all the wine brands and French lingo~ But boy do i want a taste of them wine they served... Ah~ Wine. Story-wise, it's nothing original.

I wasn't really sure what to expect out of these when I started reading them, just sort of browsing and killing time. Such a nice surprise to find a manga that combines a larger story with a bunch of smaller stories and a dose of alcohol related trivia!
