L’Aventure was founded by Stephan and Beatrice Asseo in 1998. Prior to L’Aventure, the Asseo family owned multiple properties in the Bordeaux region however, Stephan who wanted to expand his expertise while gaining more freedom in viticulture and vinification decided it was time to leave Bordeaux and start a new adventure elsewhere.
