Juliusspital Winery, located in Würzburg Since 1576

Juliusspital Winery is based in the center of Franconia, in Würzburg. The entire Franconian region is dotted by vineyards, which gives the area a breathtaking view to anyone who pays a visit. Grown on three soil types – red soil, limestone, and keuper, the grapes express the unique winegrowing region’s originality and richness.

The history of the Juliusspital Winery began in 1576 with Prince Bishop Julius Echter and his desire for wine production.


Ancient Barrel Cellar, Renovated and Restored

The history of the Juliusspital Winery began in 1576 with Prince Bishop Julius Echter and his desire for wine production. At that time, the estate was a hospital and hospice for senior citizens and a wine production facility. The old barrel cellar, Fürstenbau, was Julius’s original home, where the wines were stored for aging. Today, the ancient barrel cellar has been thoroughly renovated and restored into a new wine cellar. It is equipped with the latest technological advancements that express the hard work and dedication of current owners of Juliusspital.


Main Cultivated Grape Varieties of the Winery

The vineyards cover nearly 180 hectares and are home to a vast array of grapes, including Silvaner, Riesling, and Scheurebe. With gentle pruning and controlled fermentation, the vines are converted into wines. The Estate delivers authentic red and white wines, along with mouth-watering rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines.

The hospital was restored with modern facilities and decor. People from all over the world still pay to be treated at the facility. Today, the medical center is surrounded by parks and natural beauty that allow patients a pleasant healing environment.
