Juliusspital Wine Estate


Prince-Bishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn founded the non-profit and charitable foundation in 1576. Even today it still operates a hospital, as well as a foundation for the elderly, nursing and benefice accommodation and many other non-profit institutions for suffering and needy people.

The profits generated from agriculture, forestry and the wine estate serve to fulfil these social duties.

The associated foundation wine estate is the second largest Silvaner wine estate in Germany.
