Manga manna for Laughing Magpie Shiraz

D'Arry Osborn is 82, lives on the land and until recently had never heard of Japanese manga comics. But he has a lot to thank them for.

What connects this old-fashioned winemaker in McLaren Vale and a commuter going home on Tokyo's subway?

Manga comics, of course, and in particular The Drops of God, a comic series extolling the virtues of a certain shiraz viognier blend hand- cultivated by Osborn and his family at the d'Arenberg winery.

Based on my own experience, d'Arenberg make excellent wines. Their distinctive diagonal red stripe make them easy to find. We got married at the winery over 10 years ago. Worth a visit if you are in McLaren Vale.

And Vale Mangas.
