Our own Jean McIlquham, co-owner of Autumn Harvest Winery and Orchard received the Fan Favorite Award at the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire Celebrity Art Gala on October 5th hosted at the Lismore Hotel. Her piece raised $1,900 for the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire and was purchased by Northwestern Bank.
Jean would like to thank her supporters, especially Jerry at Northwestern Bank and Jeff at Regis Court Dental Associates for their awesome bidding war!
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.
