Stephan Asseo, owner and winemaker at L’Aventure Winery, began making wine in 1982 in his homeland of France where he developed into an artisan winemaker of fastidious craftsmanship, gaining a reputation as a maverick vigneron. However, his true desire was to be more innovative than restrictive French AOC law would allow so in 1996, he began his quest for a great terroir, eventually settling in Paso Robles. The rolling topography of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, the deep calcareous soils, and the maritime influence of the renowned Templeton Gap all combine to produce a world class wine country, with the potential to craft some of the world’s greatest blends. It is here, in Paso Robles, that Stephan began his adventure, “L’Aventure”.
