Rich in history and a true gem, it’s time for you to discover Holman Ranch. Tucked away in the hills of the Carmel Valley, this special property has history dating back to pre-California and the Missions. This 400 acre property boasts views of rolling grassy hillsides, 20 acres of estate grown vineyards, and remnants of the old world Spanish style architecture, stone walls, and hand crafted terracotta roofs.  This is the ideal setting to host a glamorous or subdued wedding, family celebration or any other style of event. The options are endless at this dreamy property.

I had the privilege of seeing Holman Ranch in its finest and enjoy a hosted evening of wine tours and tasting, food stations abound, and a multitude of settings over various areas of the property.  The wine cave and patio leading out the wine cave is the perfect warm up location for any event. This semi circle patio space looks out over the tree studded landscape and offers a secluded party space where guests can eventually walk from to the next stage of your event. From this space, guests can take a short walk to the most ideal ceremony and reception spaces.  The large grassy lawn has a panoramic view of the lush rolling hillside and can accommodate most group sizes for an elaborate or intimate setting. This space is large enough to include your cocktail hour or post ceremony activities on the lawn.

Each additional event space is immediately adjacent to the grassy lawn with exterior and interior options for your special event; from a large pad that is ideal to tent, to a quaint barn with rolling side doors.  The Carriage House offers the perfect space immediately in front the of doors for a casual lounge area while the interior wood beams have twinkle lights strung to add the perfect ambiance for late night dancing.

The Rose Patio is a very special patio space set under an arch entryway to the stone buildings.  The space is lined with lush floral planters and is set between the Classic California architecture of each building.  Leading off of this space, on either side, there are a number of special spaces within the buildings where smaller gatherings, bridal rooms, and unique opportunities await.

If you are looking for the old world feel with ultimate luxury and privacy, then Holman Ranch is a must see for you.  Happy planning!
