Clayton Korte embeds a hidden wine cave into Texas hillside.

Located at the eastern edge of the Texas Hill Country, the private wine cave is embedded into a north facing solid limestone hillside nearly disappearing into its natural surroundings. The unassuming entry court reveals a bit of mystery belying the space within, further camouflaged at the approach by limestone boulders collected from the excavation and lush vegetation. The exterior opening of the cave is capped with a board-formed concrete portal, meant to weather naturally, molded to the irregular surfaces of the limestone and retaining the mouth of the earth cut. The private cellar provides storage for a collection of 4,000 bottles.
