Jarman Fearing Lowder grew up in Tennessee, earned a nursing degree, raised three daughters with her husband Thomas Holman, and wanted to spend her golden years making wine with her husband at Holman Ranch, a property in Carmel Valley they acquired to realize that dream.
Tragically, Jarman died in 2011 at age 60 following a long battle with early onset Alzheimer's Disease.
To honor her mother's memory, Holman Ranch manager and eldest daughter Hunter Lowder has vowed to take the best estate grapes and create a premium Jarman Chardonnay and Jarman Pinot Noir. A dollar from each bottle sold will go to Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation started in 1998. The wine is estate grown, and made from organic and certified-sustainable grapes.
The Jarman wines are only available the Holman Ranch tasting room and a second, special Jarman tasting room to open in June, 2015 in Carmel Valley Village, next to Will's Fargo restaurant that they bought in 2014. The tastings will include a food element to compliment the wines.
