About the winery
L'Aventure was founded in 1998 by Stephan and Beatrice Asseo. Prior to creating L'Aventure, Stephan and Beatrice lived in Bordeaux, France where they established Domaine de Courteillac and later acquired with Stephan's family Chateau Fleur Cardinal and Chateau Robin in the Cotes de Castillon. For over 15 years, Stephan developed into an artisan winemaker and gained a reputation as a maverick vigneron. However, Stephan wanted to be more innovative and have more freedom than what the AOC law would allow. In 1996, Stephan and Beatrice took the decision to leave everything they had built in France and start a new adventure. After considering different areas, they fell in love with Paso Robles in California. The spirit of L'Aventure is most evident in Stephan's "Paso Blends", such as Optimus and Estate Cuvee, as well as in our Rhône blend Côte à Côte, where the blending of premium varietals increases the authenticity, complexity, and balance of the wines.
