Holman Ranch Vineyard & Winery
Located at the northeastern edge of the Carmel Valley AVA, the family-owned Holman Ranch produces a line of estate grown varietals planted on 19 acres. The vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir (heritage and Dijon clones), Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc.
The Holman Ranch has a long and colorful history dating to when California was part of Mexico. The story is told on the winery's website. Thomas and Jarman Lowder bought Holman Ranch in 2006 to pursue their lifelong dream of making estate grown wine and olive oil. In 2009, they restored the property and now make it available for weddings, reunions and other celebrations.
The winery's tasting room is open daily. A Pinot Noir tasting experience collection of 5 single clone Pinot Noirs and the Hacienda blend of all clones is available
