March 10, 2021 – Austin- and San Antonio-based architecture and design firm Clayton Korte has revealed its simple-yet-sexy design for a new winery in Medina, Texas. Spread across nearly 7,300 square feet, the Medina Winery will incorporate the masonry walls of an existing barn and goat shed to yield a range of diverse spaces under one gabled roof.
“The winery was designed with flexibility in mind, much like the utility that a barn has for a rancher,” says Clayton Korte principal Brian Korte. “It is, in essence, a workshop, and for small-lot winemaking there needs to be space for exploration and experimentation, with the ability to change your mind. Building in malleability provides the winemaker with a venue for this creative expression with limited risk.”
