Lohr * Joullian * Manzoni * McIntyre * Otter Cove * Pierce Winery * Tudor * Twisted Roots * Ventana * Cima Collina * Coming in Summer 2014 Holman Ranch Wine Room Highlights: Twisted Roots King Suite


Twisted Roots believes in letting the grapes speak for themselves. They feel that the work in the vineyard is where the wines get their flavor and overall complexity. As "Green Growers" they follow sustainable farming practices throughout the entire wine making process. In creating the Twisted Roots room, winemaker Josh Ruiz took the same philosophy to design as he does to making wines. Canvas pictures from the Twisted Roots vineyard adorn the walls, custom artwork made from barrels, rod iron and wine bottles show case the bar and more! Ventana Vineyards: Ventana Vineyards believes great wines are made in the vineyard, and the Ventana Vineyard has the perfect combination of water, soil, climate, art and science to create superb, world-class wines. Our success is evidenced by the number of awards that we have won over the years on wine made from this remarkable property. In fact, wines from our Ventana Vineyard have earned more medals and awards than any other single vineyard in America. When creating their Ventana Vineyards wine themed room they brought the story of the vineyard to the room. * Custom canvas prints grace the walls telling the story of the vineyards. * The winemaker’s story can be found on the room for all to enjoy. * A Ventana Vineyards wine barrel has been converted into a custom snack bar full of delicious Ventana Vineyard logoed snacks and wine! * The bed has a logoed throw and the walls have actually small vines from the vineyard affixed to them. J. Lohr: Flavorful wines, quite literally “wines full of flavor” are the mission at J. Lohr. J. Lohr’s unwavering focus on flavors sounds so simple, yet it’s surprisingly complex. Achieving the best flavor demands total control, every step of the way, and is the result of planting each site to its ideal grape variety and applying artisanal winemaking techniques, including extended maceration, barrel and malolactic fermentation, among others. When you stay in the J. Lohr room you soak up the flavor of the vineyard. From grapevine wreaths and a barrel on the balcony that offers the perfect table top to enjoy some wine and cheese to art from the vineyard and a custom J. Lohr wine display, you will as if you have been transported to the vineyard. Additional Rooms with Unique Features: * McIntyre Vineyards brought in a 5 foot vine from the vineyard that is the masthead for the bed as well as created custom glass lamps etched with the McIntyre wine label. Truly spectacular to view! * Cima Collina has their vineyard artist create custom painting for the room made from wine barrels and rod iron as well as creating their own logoed bed side stand. Amenities: * The Inn offers breakfast daily and wine tasting on the weekends. * ines that are typically available only in partner wineries’ tasting rooms are also available to guests for purchase. * Guests can relax with a glass of wine around the inviting fire pit in the garden and enjoy live music. (available most weekends) Monterey County Wine Facts: * Did you know? Monterey County is the one of the largest wine growing and producing regions in
