A 400 acre ranch awaited us and what we were about to see transported us to another world. Holman Ranch, located in the hills of Carmel Valley, California is Monterey Peninsula's best kept secret. At noon we stopped at the Holman Ranch Tasting Room. It was easy to find on Carmel Valley Road and located among a walkable stretch of... More

The tasting room is fantastic and Nick is knowledgeable and very friendly! No pressure to buy any wines or sign up for the tour. We did however sign up for the tour and it was wonderful! Well worth the small cost. The tour on the estate was intimate, educational and fun. It was a wonderful day with the family and... More

We went for a wine tasting here by recommendation and it was just amazing! Nick handled the wine tasting and is such a great guy. We absolutely loved chatting with him and learning more about their different wines. We did the white wine flight and got a taste of a delicious new dessert wine as well. Not to forget to... More

This is a review of the tasting room located in the winery row. We stopped here based on a recommendation. Nick was working and handling the tasting. He did a great job and his wine was very good. He explained the Holman operation and history. We were very pleased with our experience.

We visited the Holman Ranch tasting room in Carmel Valley in June 2013. We were impressed with the wines and the service. They offered three different wine flights; whites, reds or mixed, costing $5 for 3 wines. We decided on the white flight, which included a sauvignon blanc, a pinot gris, and a chardonnay. The server also gave us a... More

The Holman Ranch is a wonderful picturesque location. My wife and I traveled from Rhode Island for a good friend's wedding. The accommodations are excellent although the rooms could use slightly more ambient light. Not an issue at all!Had a great dinner and the barn was a nice little venue to cut loose in. If you plan on running or... More

I was invited here as part of a Carmel Valley fundraiser for local non profit companies. There are beautiful hillsides, beautiful vegetation, and the setting just lends itself to being able to relax and enjoy in an area of the Monterey/Carmel area that avoids most fog, and has temperatures in the 70's on a regular basis.

This place is like the perfect setting for seeing the REAL California. The owners are regular folks, not some spawn of a nutty hotel family that shows up on reality shows. I'm a native Southern Californian and if I were bringing in guests for the "real California" experience, this would be a must-hit place. It's really peaceful and yeah, the... More
