My girlfriend and I recently took a trip to Paso Robles and were curious about what Trip Advisor's recommendations were. Being that Ecluse is the top rated attraction and we were going to quite a few wineries, we decided to stop by.

First things first, the wine was excellent. Very consistent, complex, and delicious. I found myself saying "wow" after a few of them. After tasting we discovered Ecluse are prize winners in various competitions, one being the gold medal in San Francisco Chronicle several years running. This competition is an aggregate of 60 top reviewers, not just a small panel. Any fellow Metacritic fans will appreciate this.

Perhaps even more impressive was I left the winery not saying that "Ecluse is great", but "Pam and Steve are great." It struck me that every other winery out of about a dozen, I only remember the name of the establishment. Not so with Ecluse, and we really look forward to seeing Pam and Steve again!

A first class tasting experience with both bottled wines as well as a number of tastes from barrels. I ordered wine to be sent home. This winery is a "must see" in Paso Robles.

This was our first visit to the area and Ecluse was one of our first stops because we had heard great things about their wine. We were delighted with the staff and how much time they spent educating us on the region. We enjoyed a barrel tasting and generous pours, yummy wine! Wish we had bought more~ The unexpected thing about Ecluse was their enthusiasm for the other wines in the area, they were even displaying another wineries Zinfandel (Thatcher) that had shared a recent award for best wine! We left with a list of other wineries to visit. Great people, really great wine, don't miss this place!
