I love this place. The winemaker, Anthony, is so knowledgeable and gave us some free barrel tastings. I feel like their wines get better and better. Their red blends are my favorite, but their Chardonnay is really good too. The insider blend is my favorite,...More

I have been buying wine from Paso Robles wineries since the early '80's. This is one of a handful of best ones. And no pretentious Napa attitude (in general for most Paso wineries). See the San Francisco 2017 Wine Competition results with loads of gold...More

Maybe we were just at the end of an afternoon of wine tasting, but Ecluse did not wow us. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine was good enough.
