Excellent small production winery

We loved this small family winery and its crafted wines. The owners were on site to chat and answer questions. We bought several nice wines and will return

2012 varietals are incredible already. The 2010 varietals are becoming even more amazing. I just opened a 2010 Cab. Yum! I am going to buy another case before they run out!

Ecluse is a small winery and they make most of their wines from grapes they grow locally. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon was excellent, but don't miss Blind Dog wine - you want be disappointed. Wonderful people make the experience truly enjoyable. Such a breath of fresh air after pretentious big Paso Robles names making mediocre and expensive wines.

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

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!
