After a few too many tastes, Megan ends the Paso Robles Grand Tasting with 4 Vines Tempranillo. Winemaker Bill Grant tells WFB how Loco’s vineyard got its name “Tres Cajones” … which means 3 Balls in Spanish. Let’s just say it produces grapes with a “big backbone.”
Frank Leal, the Harry Connick Jr. of the wine world, makes some damn sexy wines, including his “Threesome Blend.” Megan and Frank hang out at one of San Diego’s best kept secrets, the Wine Vault & Bistro, where Frank shares a little wine philosophy, and a lot of wine love!

THEN they used a wine-based paint to stain Kyle’s surfboard, in one of Ryan’s “Passion Projects.” Carly Hill and Kyle tell us about the blend, the project and where to catch some killer waves in Southern California!
