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 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

Spent 3 days in carmel last month playing on beach, shopping and wine tasting. We went to 6 different wineries and this was by far the best. Duncan was so friendly and knowledgeable. He let us try a few other wines that were not on tasting menu and the pours were very generous. Had an amazing time there and will... More

Stopped here on a recommendation and so glad we did! What a fun little tasting room. Duncan, our host, was entertaining and quiet knowledgable on the wine and the ranch. Joined the wine club. Great perks and affordable wine. Looking forward to a return visit and a stay at the ranch.
