single vineyard in the municipality of Oestrich in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name is derived from "Dachsberg", as the predominant loess soils are particularly suitable for the numerous badger burrows that used to exist here. The south to south-west facing vineyards at 90 to 150 metres above sea level with slopes of 5 to 27% cover over 100 hectares of vines. The eastern, higher area forms a hilltop from where the vineyards slope to the south-west. The soils consist mainly of deep loess and loess loam interspersed with quartzite and gravel. They have a good water retention capacity, especially in the lower part of the site.

I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.
