Food
“Novice Winemaker Turns into a Local Pro!! It all began in 1969 on the 10th wedding anniversary of Raymond and Gladys Haak. Gladys’s gifts to Raymond that year were two Concord grapevines. What began as a hobby with those two vines soon turned into a great passion for both of the novice winemakers. With these and numerous other grape varietals that came after them, Raymond tested which varieties would survive the climatic conditions along the Gulf Coast of Texas.”
