Haak Vineyards and Winery, Inc., Santa Fe

It all began in 1969 on the 10th wedding anniversary of Raymond and Gladys Haak. Gladys’ 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.

A few years later, Raymond read about a hybrid grape variety that was said to be resistant to Pierce's Disease and grew well in dry, hot environments. It was called Blanc du Bois.

Haak became one of the first wineries in the country to cultivate Blanc du Bois. And his foresight has proven positive as the winery has produced numerous medal-winning wines from the Blanc du Bois grapes. The once-small gathering of two lonely grape vines in 1969, has turned into 3 acres filled with 1800 vines and production of the first commercial Haak wines in 2000.

Today, the winery consists of more than 25,000 sq. ft., including an 1,800 sq. ft. cellar, which is used for storing and aging wines in oak barrels. Artwork throughout the winery is reminiscent of Italy, Greece, Spain and Portugal with many angels watching over and protecting the vines and grapes. The winery has grown into a destination for many locals and a major tourist attraction for Santa Fe, Texas and Galveston County.

  • Very pretty winery! The wine is good, the Madeira is very good!! The service is nice, and friendly. Had a good time, will definitely be back!  more »
  • This was my first time in a vineyard. From the entrance the employees are friendly and the tour is easy and easy to understand. Tasting is a plus, I advise you to buy the cheeses, biscuits and hams you have in your shop to complement the experience. Cosmoritas is a frozen wine-based drink. I took 3. Recommended to spend some time with family. This was my first time in a vineyard. From the entrance the employees are friendly and the tour is easy and simple to understand.

  • Eli was the greatest! Helped us sign up for a wine club. He was the reason we signed up! He should always be at the front desk and interacting with guests.
