Often used single-location name in Germany, referring to the occurrence of the badger in vineyards, which digs its burrows here when the soil is suitable, such as loess or loam.
The vineyard, which faces southwest to west and has a slope of 20 to 45%, covers 12 hectares of vines. The soil consists of loamy and clayey weathering over Keuper and shell limestone. The varieties cultivated here are Pinot Blanc (Pinot Noir), Pinot Gris (Pinot Gris), Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt and Blauer Portugieser. The Gussek and Zahn wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
