Oenology graduate Stephan Asseo began his winemaking career in the 1980s in Burgundy and among the many celebrated Bordeaux family vineyards. After working for 17 years in Bordeaux, he decided to turn to new horizons. He was looking for a vineyard in California - with the intention of not reproducing a copy of Bordeaux - and he found his Eden in Paso Robles. An unwanted and virgin territory situated halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles and only 30 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. Aventure winery was born.
