Single vineyard site in the municipality of Iphofen (Steigerwald area) in the German Franconian wine growing region. It is named after the Würzburg prince-bishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn (1545-1617). He founded not only the University of Würzburg but also the Juliusspital Foundation. At the beginning of the 19th century, the three sites Berg, Rechenberg and Johannisberg were combined under this new site designation; when the land was consolidated in 1971, the area was almost doubled by incorporating neighbouring sites. The Julius-Echter-Berg became famous worldwide due to a 1950 Riesling selection that was delivered to the British Royal House in London on the occasion of the coronation celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
