L'Aventure, or Stephan Vineyards, is a California wine estate producing signature red wine blends utilizing what are traditionally Bordeaux and Rhône grape varieties. The winery is located southwest of Paso Robles, California, along the Pacific Coast in the Santa Lucia Mountain range.HistoryStephan Asseo settled in Paso Robles due to its similarities in terroir to the Rhône Valley, founding L'Aventure in 1998.Following a vision of "Bordeaux meets Rhône in Paso Robles", consistent acclaim and high scores by Robert M. Parker, Jr. have caused sales of L'Aventure wines to rise considerably, and the estate has been informally termed a "Grand Cru of Paso Robles".Asseo was selected as 2007 Winemaker of the Year of San Luis Obispo County. In 2007 he also appeared in the second series of Oz and James's Big Wine Adventure.ProductionThe vineyard area extends 127acre, cultivated with grape varieties of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 15% Petit Verdot and 15% Mourvèdre as well as portions of Grenache, Roussanne, Viognier and Grenache blanc.To visit L'Aventure Winery and get the most from your holiday in Paso Robles, create itinerary details personal to you using our Paso Robles trip planner.

We had a great time tasting at L'Aventure last week. The wines are bold and the tasting room is stunning. Our host was very knowledgeable about wine and made our experience great! As luck would have it we forgot our tablet there and they had closed for the day by the time we realized. The next morning we showed up and they had put it in a safe place for us. Thanks again to the staff for taking good care of our tablet!
This was my first wine tasting in Paso, and it sure set the bar high. Great wine, cool tour through the building, and Daniella was a great guide through it all.
