Our son had his wedding at Holman Ranch. Amazing and majestic location for the ceremony. Charming and yet elegant facilities on the property for cocktails, rehearsals dinner, wedding dinner, and dancing. The wedding party spent the weekend on site. The overnight cottages, the game room, the kitchen, the beautifully landscaped grounds, the pool, the courtyard and the barn were all... More

Holman Ranch itself is absolutely beautiful!! The staff is incredibly helpful, happy and professional! The estate is impeccable in regards to the landscape, out buildings, private cottages, wine cellar and more. My husband and I were married at the ranch and held our reception at the location in 1992 our daughter also married and held her reception at the estate... More

We stopped in here awhile back. It's a pretty small tasting room with a bar and two other tables. No outdoor area. A pretty uninspired interior. They have several flights available for around 10 dollars for 3-4 pours. Wines, both red and white, here are good but not exceptional. Reds limited to Pinot. One of the reds was pretty skunky...

The best in being together as a family, we were here for a weekend family wedding and although a bit rustic, after all it is a ranch, without the livestock, they did a fabulous job hosting my sons affair. Everything was clean , my most important requirement, and well stocked. It is really a winery so that helps with the... More

I went to a fundraiser a few months ago and the place is incredibly beautiful. We were escorted by tractor to the venue. It is quite large and can accommodate many people.

Had a great wine tasting today at Holman Tasting room in Carmel Valley Village from Duncan. He's a 3nd generation native of the area and does know his wine and local history. The wines were mostly very good and the prices were very good. They do serve 2 ounce pours where everyone else we tried gives you a skimpy 1... More

We attended a wedding here on a Saturday afternoon. The location was fantastic and the staff was professional and attentive. The sit down dinner was in a nice outdoor courtyard. They have on-site accommodations that can be used by the bridal party to keep everything pretty self-contained.

I was just at Holman Ranch for Fiesta de Los Amigos. I have also been here for a wedding. The venue is spectacular with beautiful landscaping & arresting views. The architecture lends itself to a quaint ranch with lots of wood & stonework, massive gates & cobblestones.

My wife and I visited about a dozen tasting rooms in Carmel-by-the-Sea and Carmel Valley. Our favorites were in Carmel Valley, and of those this was the one that I wanted to write about because it was our favorite by far. The host took tons of time to talk to us and gave us lots of extra tastes. It was... More
