"Quality Wines Born & Raised in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin"

We Will Open May 1



Nestled in the heart of apple orchard country, Autumn Harvest Winery was opened in July of 2005, by John & Marykay McIlquham, in the small township of Lafayette, Chippewa County, Wisconsin. 

By taking Marykay's hobby of wine-making and adding it to the existing John McIlquham Orchard family business, we have added something new to the traditional orchard experience! We proudly celebrated our 10th wine season in 2014!

Visitors to our tasting room can enjoy complimentary wine tasting during regular business hours, sample gourmet foods or peruse the gift shop. The patio provides seating to enjoy wine by the glass or bottle, while enjoying one of our many Wisconsin cheeses or join in the fun for our WINE, WOMEN & WHATEVER! events. During the spring, you can enjoy the fresh sights of blooming apple trees, flowers and an abundance of wildlife.  July brings fresh ready picked blueberries grown in the orchard.  During the fall season (Aug-Oct), we are open daily 9am to 6pm.  Seventeen varieties of apples are available ready picked or pick- your-own, including Honeycrisp and Zestar. FREE wagon rides and a FREE corn maze will surely delight kids of all ages!
