Renault Winery, Egg Harbor City

(3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Renault Winery is a winery located in Egg Harbor City and Galloway Township in Atlantic County, New Jersey. It is the oldest active winery in the state in New Jersey. Renault is one of the larger winegrowers in New Jersey, having 48 acres of grapes under cultivation, and producing 20,000 cases of wine per year. The winery is named after its founder.HistoryThe vineyard was first planted in 1864 by Louis Nicolas Renault, a French immigrant from Mareuil-sur-Ay who brought the original vinifera grapes from France. Renault opened to the public in 1870, and for many years was the largest producer of champagne in the United States. Renault survived the Prohibition era by obtaining licenses to produce sacramental wine as well as various medicinal wines, including "Renault Wine Tonic" which was sold by pharmacists across the United States. Mildred Norman, decades before her treks across the continent as Peace Pilgrim, worked in the winery as a secretary.After World War II, Atlantic City political boss and racketeer Enoch "Nucky" Johnson was employed by Renault. While the winery once cultivated 600 acres of grapes, and sold 500,000 cases of wine per year, production has decreased substantially in recent decades. The winery has instead developed into a resort, opening a restaurant in 1983, a hotel and second restaurant in 2000, and a golf course in 2004.

  • Stayed at the Tuscan House the night before a friends wedding. Hotel is beautiful. Very clean and decorated nicely. We went to Joseph's Restaurant for dinner. Truly one of the best dinners ever. There were six of us and each ordered something different and it was awesome. Desserts were homemade and delicious. Can't wait to return, we will be back in the fall. This hotel/restaurant are hidden gems.
  • The restaurant in the hotel was way over priced and the food was awful!! The beds were very hard also.
  • Great romantic getaway, on site restaurant was very good especially the rack of lamb
  • Friendly staff and the scenery is pretty.
  • What a cool winery with an awesome history.... 2nd oldest winery in the country. Mark our wine tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining The Noah and blueberry champagne were delicious !!!
