The main character of the manga, a young man called Shizuku Kanzaki, discovers the beauty of wine after his father, a famous wine critic, dies and leaves an unusual will. Within it there is a description of 12 wines he considers to be the best in the world, comparing them to Jesus Christ's disciples. The will says that the first person to find these "disciples" will inherit the father's wine collection. Thus, a contest begins that pits Shizuku against his adoptive brother, Issey Tomine, who works as a sommelier. Although Shizuku avoids working with wine because of his father, and instead works for a beer company, Shizuku finds himself pulled back into the fine art of being a sommelier -- and he realizes his father's lessons have been well engraved into him. Who will discover the wonders and secrets of the "disciples" first?
