' Haak Wines Winning Awards!

A note from Gladys Haak:
Father’s Day Sunday June 19---I wanted to thank everyone for coming out for a wonderful afternoon at Haak Winery. I don’t know about the rest of you, but the preceding 2 weeks were very heavy and sad with all the suffering from Florida. It was such a joy to have so much fun by being entertained by “The Blues Brothers”. They were entertaining, funny and just light and happy fun.

I’d also like to mention two other awesome incidents in the last week---First seeing our Grandson, Harold Love, Jr, entertaining at the Mainland Preparatory Academy with Izola Collins, a Galveston Icon. She played old blues on the piano. She is 88 years old and still brings joy and happiness to whomever she can. She thinks our grandson is a talented musician.

Our 2nd happy event--we watched, Seth Dalton, a young man who grew up handicapped, perform at his Senior Music Recital in Spring, Texas. He graduated Valedictorian for St. Thomas High School and will attend the University of Rochester in New York majoring in biological science and music theory. He was witty, happy and so talented. His musical abilities were amazing. One day that young man will be writing Broadway Hits.

I hope to see all of you at the winery real soon.  In this e-Newsletter, we share some of the wonderful awards our wines have won recently.  Also at the bottom are upcoming events here at the winery.
