Kranz family or wrath around the village?
Is the single vineyard placed like a wreath (German: “Kranz”) around Dalheim? That would be a nice explanation, but unfortunately no. The site does, however, lie around one side of the village, from east to south to west. It was mentioned in a document in 1418 with the name "off dem Crausberge". It is assumed that a personal name was decisive. The various vines thrive on clay marl and loess. Incidentally, the fossil-rich sands in this area belong to the Stadecken Formation and were deposited in the Mainz Basin area about 30 million years ago. Hikers are recommended to visit the Graunsberg hut near the site: an approximately 150-year-old earth-covered building with barrel vaults. The "Amiche" cycle route runs close to the village of Dalheim.
- There is another single vineyard with the name Kranzberg in Rheinhessen: the Niersteiner Kranzberg
