Stephan Asseo, L’Aventure Winery

2019 Special Guest Speaker

Stephan Asseo, owner and winemaker at L’Aventure Winery, began making wine in 1982, following his education at L’Ecole Oenologique de Macon, Burgundy, France. In that same year, Stephan established Domaine de Courteillac in Bordeaux. He and his family later purchased Chateau Fleur Cardinal and Chateau Robin in the Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux.

Over the next 15 years, Stephan developed into an artisan winemaker of fastidious craftsmanship and gained a reputation as a maverick vigneron. However, his true desire was to be more innovative than AOC law would allow. After searching for over a year among the world’s great wine fields, ranging from South Africa to Lebanon, Argentina to Napa, Stephan found Paso Robles. Stephan immediately “fell in love” with the unique terroir of west side Paso Robles. The rolling topography of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range, the deep calcareous soils, and the maritime influences 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”.

2019 Live Auction Lots

Each year features wine lots carefully selected by wine connoisseur, Philippe Dietz, Head of School for the International School of the Peninsula, as well as trips and experiences that cannot be found anywhere else.

Here is a sneak peek at the offerings available this year.
