Vineyard Golf At Renault Winery


Vineyard Golf at Renault Winery promises an ultimate weekend retreat outside Atlantic City offering a golf course, winery, restaurants and an accommodation at the Tuscany Hotel. Louis Nicolas Renault originally owned the property where he sold his signature bubbly, New Jersey Champagne. Being the country’s no. 1 producer of wine for a time, the business was not able to survive during the 1970’s. Fortunately, the newspaper man Joe Milza saved the business and bought the vineyard. His fascination in the winery as well as its building extends until this day which he called it home for more than 30 years.

Milza developed the winery into resort instead of its original plan of converting it into a residential area due to the local restrictions regarding residential development. This event leads to the fully conversion of the winery as a golf resort.

When the golf course’s first designer Arthur Hills drop the project, the regional course designer Ed Shearon finished the job. Shearon’s final product resulted to be an angle course where novice golfers will be challenged while holding the average golfer’s interest. Although playing the hole will not knock out the golfer, most of the holes have its own risk and reward challenge. The 18-hole championship course spans more than 7,000 yards with five set of tees. The well-manicured greens allow a smooth putting surface providing a consistent and fast play at all times. The picturesque view of the course is emphasized by the orchards and vineyards as well as the fairways, tees and ponds.

The casual dining Joseph’s Italian Restaurant and Bar serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Executive Chef Joseph DeGennaro prepares the veal menu. Gourmet Restaurant offers fine dining experience which serves dinner and brunch every Sunday while the menu changes every week. Champagne are also served.

The winery also provides an accommodation with its Mediterranean-inspired Tuscany House Hotel with 45 large rooms. Old wood and marble brings the warmth guests expect. The hallway has antique displays of paintings, tables and antiques enclosed in glass cabinets. In addition, outdoor pools, patios and courtyards are also included the hotel’s amenities.
