Staying at Holman Ranch was a delight! It truly epitomizes the word guest. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the cottages are tastefully decorated. We checked in at the wine tasting room and we were immediately offered some tastings of their wonderful wine. You need a code to enter the ranch so you feel very safe here. After we toured... More

We had a wonderful tasting experience at Holman Ranch. Our hostess was friendly and knowledgeable of the wines. We tried 2 flights of wine - the mountain flight and the Pinot noir flight plus a couple extras. Both flights were delicious- and all pours were very generous. My favourite was the dessert wine - Sweet Love. Yummy. Sweet with crisp... More

This is the most stunningly beautiful wedding venue I have ever seen. Multiple buildings and grounds so there is plenty of room for the group to spread out. Must see it to believe, and since they don't just let you drive up there, you might have to search online for pictures. Well worth it if you are looking for a... More

As a local, we have a lot of choices of wine tasting rooms to go when friends come to town. But we always bring people to Holman Ranch! The tasting room is so fun -- comfortable seats, great staff, and super dog friendly! A great way to spend the afternoon!

My husband and I were first introduced to Holman Ranch when looking at wedding venues in Carmel Valley.

Nicest people, took the time to show us every aspect of the wine making business, from growing the grapes to the harvest, bottleing and storing in the underground caves. We will be back again for sure. We just received our annual case of wine and every drop is just what we tasted in Carmel. See you again soon, Tom &... More

Attended a wedding there last weekend and was blown away by the grounds! Picked up by a golf cart and driven up the hill to the venue. Wedding ceremony was on green lawn overlooking gorgeous views, cocktail hour in different spot and dinner in the outdoor pavillion was wonderful. Ended the night in the barn dancing the night away.

Great location for a wedding. Felt we were transported to A real Tuscan wedding. The location is charming and there were different areas for the wedding, dinner, dancing. Every place was a picture perfect photo op.
