We invite you to discover us and experience wine tasting the old fashion way – in the barrel room with the winemaker! We are a small family owned winery & vineyard dedicated to producing limited production, hand-crafted, award-winning Rhone and Bordeaux style wines. Located on 30 beautiful acres of gently rolling hillside terroir on the desired Westside of the Paso Robles AVA, our philosophy is to make the very best wines from the very best fruit. Come "Savor the Wine that is truly Écluse"!Cheers!We are a small, boutique family owned winery therefore a reservation is required for groups of 7-10 and must be made in advance.

Ecluse is a small winery about 5 minutes from downtown Paso Robles. It has a simple tasting room, not ostentatious at all. Heather poured for us, and was quite knowledge about the wines and the history of the winery. Their tastings are complimentary and they poured 5 wines for us. We particularly enjoyed the 2010 Prelude (a blend of Viognier,... More

This was our first stop in the area and as soon as we walked in, someone came over with glasses in hand and started pouring. This definitely was a good start to a day of winery hopping. They were quick on their service and friendly with any questions we had. Very nice in helping us plan our tour and was... More

Open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11:00am to 4:00pm. Atop a hill not far from Pine Street on the West side of Paso Robles this tasting room is located in the production facility. They have a nice selection of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals. They do a lot of the tastings on top of empty wine barrels to give a... More

Small production operation with great wines, fantastic stuff, intimate tasting room where you get so many personal and special touches. One of the best stops in Paso for anyone that likes an experience with their wine tasting.

Steve and the rest of the Ecluse employees were very personable and happy to talk about the vineyard, wines, and the Paso Robles area. The wines are very good and we even tasted a couple of upcoming blends!

My wife and I were so glad we stopped here. The owner was pouring wines and the tasting was really casual and enjoyable. We will definitely be back.

It is off the beaten path but it is well worth putting it in the GPS and enjoying the countryside. They only do tastings on Friday to Sunday so plan ahead. Our visit was late in the day and we had the place to ourselves. Friendly, well educated staff added to the experience of the fantastic, customized experience. All the... More

We discovered this winery from our attendance at the Paso Robles Wine Festival. This is a small privately owned winery specializing in the blending of French Varietals in French or Hungarian Oak. The tasting was complimentary and included a sample of one blend being aged in Hungarian Oak and then a taste of the same blend, same age out of... More

One of the best places in Paso Robles for really solid wines at excellent prices. A true undiscovered gem. Worth the time to go there.

Be careful getting off the 101 on the right street, as Paso Robles insists on making streets difficult. John poured our wine when we arrived and was a walking book on wine, etc. Very nice place, very nice guy. Write out all your questions, he will know everything! Heck, I dislike wine and I even was getting into it!
