Usuke Boys

Okamura and four close friends regularly meet at a group for wine aficionados. They share the belief that Japanese grapes are less flavourful than French grapes and so bear an inferior wine. When they encounter Japanese-made Kikyogahara Merlot and its maker Usuke Asai, their lives are changed. Dropping their jobs and renting farmland they pledge to follow Usuke-san and his philosophy of wine-making, and life.

A warm, inspirational tale for wine-lovers and teetotallers alike.
