Welcome to the World of Juliusspital Wines
In 1576 the Prince Bishop Julius Echter founded the charitable and
non-profit-making Juliusspital foundation.
For more than 435 years the proceeds of the second largest wine-estate in Germany have financed the social commitment of the foundation. Bearing this heritage in mind, we always strive to achieve superior quality. Sustainably and innovatively.
