L'Aventure Rocks!

A great recent discovery for us: L’Aventure Wines

Stephan Asseo has been a dedicated vigneron and artisan winemaker for nearly two decades. His unique style and level of quality garners acclaim and accolades from the European press, travel guides, the Wine Advocate and the Wine Spectator. In 1996, Stephan left France in search of a terroir where he could consistently achieve full maturity in his fruit and be unfettered as an innovator. Stephan’s “adventure” led him all over the world in search of a great wine field, until he finally “fell in love” with Paso Robles. He has become known for his renegade Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah blends, like the Optimus and the Estate Cuvee.
