We're pleased to offer a wide collection from l”Aventure, a standard bearer for Californian Rhone-styled wines from the hills on Paso Robles’ Westside.

“Easily one of the reference point producers in California, L'Aventure is run by French transplant (St. Emilion to be exact) Stephan Asseo, who began making wine in 1982 in Burgundy. He and his family later purchased Château Fleur Cardinal (St. Emilion) and Château Robin (Côtes de Castillion) in the Bordeaux region, where he stayed until 1996. Frustrated with the strict AOC regulations, he traveled through numerous wine regions looking for new terroir, and ended up falling in love with the rolling hills and limestone soils on the west side of Paso Robles, California...Without a doubt, Asseo is one of the Central Coast superstars and the results speak for themselves.”
- Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate.

Paso Robles has rapidly established itself among the New World's finest areas for the production of Rhone styled blends, while the high altitude, rare limestone soil and cooling influence of the coast also favor Bordeaux varieties well.

Stephan Asseo's l'Aventure blends are roughly as follows:

Optimus: 55% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot

Cote a Cote: 50% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 25% Mourvedre

Cuvee Les Demoiselles: 60% Mourvedre, 30% Syrah and 10% Grenache

Cuvee Chloe: 70% Syrah and 30% Grenache

Estate Cuvee: 50% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot

"Asseo continues to go from strength to strength, producing a fabulous portfolio of wines that makes L'Aventure one of the bright, shining reference points for the region.  This is one of the California Central Coast superstars, and the wines are worth every cent." - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
