Lot #4: Discover L’Aventure
Your adventure will start with driving the scenic road to L’Aventure, a winery tucked away among the sun-drenched hills of Paso Robles. You and five friends will have the privilege to visit this modern and magical estate known for its small production and outstanding blends. Wowing critics, this special winery is a true gem!
L’Aventure founder Stephan Asseo and his family had three estates in Bordeaux, but, feeling restricted by the typical AOC classifications, he ventured beyond France to make something more creative, more innovative, more adventurous. So, he and his family searched for more than a year, looking for a new location that would let him make the wine he wanted. They journeyed all across the world, visiting the best wine regions and moving on, fruitless in their quest. But one day, they came to Paso Robles and discovered something spectacular. Stephan fell in love with the terroir, the magic, of the place. Their search was over. This is how in 1998, where one adventure ended, another began. L’Aventure was founded.
Led by a tasting associate who was personally trained by Stephan, you will discover L’Aventure’s unique wines, creative blends of Rhône and Bordeaux varieties. The tour will lead you around the winery and through the caves of beautiful limestone, culminating with a sit-down tasting in Stephan’s personal library room, where you will experience his top craftsmanship in creating wines. But you will already have claimed a piece of the treasure long before you set off for the winery. Return home from Soirée Du Vin with your prize: three of the estate’s best wines, including the 2018 Estate Cuvée, which has earned incredible scores from critics, such as 100 points from Jeb Dunnuck.
After this unforgettable adventure, you will understand the passion, feeling, and absolute wine-wizardry that drives L’Aventure!
