Écluse may not be familiar to you yet but we will be! 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. We are unable to accommodate groups larger than 10. To schedule a tasting reservation, please give us a call. We look forward to welcoming you into our tasting room!

my wife and I stopped in here randomly while wine tasting in paso and walked out in the wine club. it looked kinda funny--really just a big garage or "pull barn". everyone was very cool and willing to talk or not talk about their wines. the wine is "pretentious-worthy" but the folks choose for that not to happen. enjoy a...

One of my favorite wineries in Paso for the great wines and excellent staff. We visited with our extremely shy dog and a 5 month old baby, and both were welcomed so warmly outside the entrance (dogs can go into the tasting room). The barrel tasting comparing different types of oak was very fun. We enjoyed our visit very much... More

We have been wine club members at Ecluse for several years and it is always consistently great. They have one white Rhone blend and the rest are reds, zinfandel, Cab, blends, all are wonderful. Prices are reasonable with a "Blind Dog" table wine at $15.00 through to blends at approx. $40.00. They don't pour the Blind Dog in the tasting... More

Steve Lock is a magician. His blends and varietals are stunning. This is one of the unspoiled wineries where the tasting room is in a barn and the owner is usually there to chat about the offerings. He is one of the stellar winemakers in Paso.

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.
