CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- It turned out to be a beautiful day for dozens of people to enjoy live music, wood-fired pizzas and plenty of local wine.

Autumn Harvest Winery in Chippewa Falls is celebrating its 10th season of producing homegrown wines. The event also included wine tastings and free wagon rides through the orchard.

Winery owner Marykay Mcilquham says it's great to share the milestone with the community.

"From day one we started with our tag line, quality wines born and raised in Chippewa Falls, and that goes back to our heritage. The Mcilquaham's have been doing apples in the community for 90 years this year and we've prided ourselves on produce before that and now we've taken that produce and turned it into some really quality wines," said Mcilquham.

The winery is open Wednesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
