Open since late July, The Ace in the Hole combines the atmosphere of an English pub with that of a California winery tasting room. The cider pub showcases Ace Premium Hard Ciders, a line of apple, pear and honey ciders made at the companys on-site mill from Sonoma County fruit.
Visitors to the wine region who tire of imbibing too much Pinot Noir can take a break with a drink at The Ace in the Hole, located on Highway 116 en route to the California coast and the Russian River Valley wineries and resorts. In addition to its three regular bottlings, the pub will feature a changing roster of different ciders, such as mango and English "scrumpy." Visitors can also tour the cider mill and learn about the history and process of cider-making.
