Visitor Tips and News About Big Renault Wine Bottle
This is cool if you happen to be driving by, but don't go too far off your path to see it.[Ray, 01/25/2014]
The story I've heard about the wine bottles is that some of them are on land not owned by the winery and there have been disputes over payment of rent/lease for the advertising space. Near the wine bottle at the corner of Rt. 30 and Bremen Ave. is a house surrounded by a billboard that used to advertise the winery to westbound travelers on Rt. 30. About two years ago, it was boarded over. Around the same time, a billboard appeared on the eastbound side. That intersection is unusually prone to accidents, usually around 3:30 in the afternoon. I want to put a camera on top of the warehouse to see how the accidents keep happening. I usually just hear the "boom" and run outside with a fire extinguisher.[Don, 01/08/2005]
Renault Winery Bottle
The Renault winery "bottles" along RT 30, Egg Harbor NJ. Been around since the 20s. This one was hit by a truck a few years back, but has been recently fixed and repainted! Yay![Dan Reed, 07/10/1999]
