Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard is proud to have been mentioned in Outdoor Families Magazine’s article: 40+ Things To Do In Eau Claire : A Wisconsin Family Vacation Guide.
“On my last day in Eau Claire, I sample fruit wines and pick honeycrisp apples at Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard. Leaves are just starting to turn and the air is sweet with the aroma of apples. The corn maze rustles in the wind as Chad and Jean McIlquham share how they got into the business. Like many people from around here, they moved away for school, then came back for the quality of life and started new (dream) careers. They admit that it’s been hard work, but look happy. What they don’t tell me is how many award winning wines they’ve produced. “Passionate, not pretentious” comes to mind again.”
Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard produces many wines using fruit from their orchard, and a hard cider. Visitors can enjoy complimentary wine tasting, sample local cheeses and chocolates, relax on the outdoor patio, or peruse the gift shop. Starting in May you can enjoy the beautiful sights of blooming apple trees, flowers and an abundance of wildlife. In July you can purchase fresh blueberries or pick your own. During the fall season, apples and pumpkins can be purchased or you can pick your own, enjoy wagon rides and a free corn maze.
