Wine Pairing Dinner to Delight the Senses
CARMEL VALLEY, CA (March, 2014) Holman Ranch Vineyards and Winery will be having a winemaker’s dinner at Will's Fargo Dining House & Saloon in Carmel Valley Village. Attendees are invited to meet the winemaker from Holman Ranch, enjoy a five course meal from Will’s Fargo and support the SPCA for Monterey County!
Will’s Fargo is known for traditional favorites as a classic steak house and saloon. Will’s Fargo’s Chef Jerome Viel offers a menu where beef reigns, but ample marquee space is given to fresh fish, vegetarian dishes and other delicious items sourced from local farmers. All selections are cleverly prepared to appease the loyal crowd of locals and tourists alike; at the same time, Viel’s subtle hand plays to the more sophisticated palate. Dessert is worth a trip by itself for one of the best apple galettes outside of Brittany.
Viel will be creating a five course wine pairing dinner on Tuesday, April 22nd at Wills’ Fargo located at 16 W. Carmel Valley Road in Carmel Valley Village. The dinner will be paired with Holman Ranch Vineyards and Winery estate wines.

Holman Ranch Vineyard and Winery Background:
Located at the north eastern tip of the Carmel Valley Appellation, the family-owned Holman Ranch resides approximately 12 miles inland from the Pacific Coast. Immersed in history and romance, the ranch has not only proven to be an excellent growing location for our vineyards but also for the Tuscan varietal olive trees which have flourished under the temperate climate.
Holman Ranch estate-grown wine varietals are planted on approximately 19 acres of undulating terrain. The wines produced are unfined and crafted to deliver the true varietal of the grape from harvest to bottle. The climate and terroir of the appellation has played a critical part in the success of their wines. The warmth of the inland valley coupled with the cooling marine layer has proven to be an ideal microclimate for the production of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The vineyards' Burgundy Clones have thrived from the perfect blend of ideal climate, southern exposure and thin rocky soils.
The estate wines of Holman Ranch include: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé of Pinot Noir. Carefully hand-harvested, cold pressed and bottled, the Extra Virgin Olive Oil produced from the fruits of our trees has a delightfully distinctive flavor.
