Holman Ranch's Carmel Valley tasting room offers the perfect backdrop to swirl, sip and savor the different complexities of Holman Ranch Vineyard and Winery wines. There is something for everyone (5 varietals in fact), from the full-bodied Pinot Noirs to the light, fruity flavors of our Pinot Gris and lightly oaked Chardonnay. Holman Ranch also offers estate grown and bottled Olive Oil available for tasting and purchase at the Tasting Room.The Tasting Room showcases the estate wines of Holman Ranch include: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rose of Pinot Noir. Carefully hand-harvested, cold pressed and bottled, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced from the fruits of our Tuscan trees has a delightful spice followed by a buttery finish.Tastings are offered daily for $5 per tasting. A standard tasting includes five varietals. The tasting fee is waived with the purchase of $50 or more in wine.The tasting room is open Sun - Thurs from 11:00 am-6:00 pm, Fri - Sat from 12:00 pm- 7 pm, and can be reserved for private events.

We were on the property for a small, intimate wedding. The grounds and buildings were impeccably maintained. We were invited to explore the property and buildings that housed many venues: corporate retreat boardroom, pool, putting green, bar/ poolroom, fireplace room, dance "barn", intimate chapel, quiet courtyards and all appointed with period rustic furniture and furnishings. The property overlooks the Carmel... More

Beautiful location on top of the hill, nice grounds, and buildings. I didn't deal with the staff directly, but everything did seem well run.

We've visited the Holman Ranch Tasting room, in the Carmel Valley Village, on a number of occasions. The staff is always sooo friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to talk with...but the star of the visits are the wines, of course. All the grapes are grown just up the road on their ranch (which is worth a visit too). The wines are... More

Holman Ranch is a bit run down. Although near he beautiful mountains of Carmel Valley, you must drive along a not nice side road to get to it. Okay for a casual wedding but not the place to hold an elegant wedding from our overall disappointing experience. It used to be a good place for horseback riding lessons and a... More

Nick took five of us on a tour and barrel tasting adventure. We had so much fun, ended up at the tasting room and took enough wine home that we almost had to leave a bag of luggage or two to make room for our purchases! Their wine club membership benefits include a two night stay at the ranch -... More

Quite possibly the most beautiful wedding I have ever attended. From the rehearsal dinner to the wedding ceremony to the reception. The grounds and views are breathtaking.

Attended a rehearsal Dinner& wedding the following day. The grounds and wine are both amazing! The staff was on the spot, never had an empty glass and the food was superb. Would recommend for any occasion or just for the tasting room
