History
The focal point of Holman Ranch Vineyards and Winery is a 1928 Carmel Stone Hacienda. This private residence was originally a gentleman’s retreat, and hosted celebrities such as Charlie Chaplin. In 1943, when the Holman’s took ownership, they turned the ranch into a vibrant, social scene for the Central Valley. Now it’s owned by the Lowder family who restored it, and turned it into the event venue it is today.

    Amazing wedding venue

    Our experience with Holman Ranch went above and beyond our expectations. We are so happy we were able to get married here.

    First, the venue itself is just stunning. I still can't believe how beautiful everything was on our wedding day with the flowers blooming all over and the mountains in the background - everything truly felt like a dream.

    Second, the staff is excellent. I worked primarily with Maddie who was really friendly, helpful and patient with us throughout the process. All of our questions were met with quick and clear responses, which made the planning process with Holman Ranch really easy.

    Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our experience and highly recommend Holman Ranch!

    The most beautiful wedding venue ever!

    We had our wedding on June 2nd 2019 on a Sunday and our guests kept telling us it was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING they have ever attended!! I am more than pleased that we picked Holman Ranch as our wedding venue.

    Maddie is so friendly and easy to communicate with throughout the whole process. She sends you photos and replies to all your questions. She showed my parents, my fiance, and I the venue multiple times at different visits and she was informative and hospitable each time.

    The venue was a little out of our budget, but the ala carte Sunday was so worth it especially because the venue and view are breathtaking and it will be an unforgettable wedding not just for you but also your guests!! The venue comes with furniture, heat lamps, fire pits, lighting etc, so I felt like it was totally worth the price!! And honestly the venue is soooo beautiful that you don't need much flowers or decorations. Also you get to utilize the bridal and groom suites when you arrive on property, which is perfect to put your dress on and for photos.
    Your guests even get shuttled on golf carts that go through the vineyards and guests complimented the amazing view. The bride and groom even get shuttled to beautiful hilltop views for sunset photos and our wedding photographer was even taken aback by how beautiful the views were!

    On the wedding day, the ceremony lawn had so many lush colorful flowers for June! The rose garden is so romantic and rustic for the reception. The carriage house was perfect for guests to dance to, but could also hang out near it in the lounge area. Everything is close enough proximity so that your guests aren't completely scattered. I would book this venue all over again and holman ranch made it such a memorable wedding day for my husband and I!!
