Bayville, New Jersey: Big Champagne Bottle

Twenty feet tall, made of concrete. Who knew that New Jersey made champagne? The big bottle continues to be repurposed for advertising purposes.

This big champagne bottle is now painted white. It is still located at a propane distributor.

Champagne Propane Bottle.

Champagne Bottle

The biggest champagne bottle (about 20 ft. high) at 512 US highway route 9 Bayville, NJ, and Dino the Dinosaur who stands guard at 395 US highway route 9 Bayville, NJ (they're about a mile from each other) Bayville is about half way between New York City and Atlantic City traveling along route 9.

There are several giant champagne bottles scattered around NJ, all built in the 1920s. The best preserved one is east of New Gretna (south of Tuckerton), followed by the one on Rt. 30 in Cologne. When last we looked, the Bayville Bottle had been painted over to become a sign for the IGA supermarket that stands next door (Dec. 2004 update - no longer touting the IGA, now it advertises "Champagne Propane"). The Renault Winery (which built these things) must be pissed.
