We describe how to construct solutions to eleven-dimensional supergravity corresponding to M5-branes wrapped on holomorphic 2-cycles embedded in 3. These solutions preserve = 1 supersymmetry in four dimensions. In the near-horizon limit they are expected to be dual to = 1 large-N gauge theories in four dimensions by Maldacena's duality.
