single vineyard in the municipality of Iphofen (Steigerwald area) in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. It is named after the Würzburg Prince-Bishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn (1545-1617). He not only founded the University of Würzburg, but also the Juliusspital Foundation. At the beginning of the 19th century, the three individual vineyards Berg, Rechenberg and Johannisberg were combined under this new vineyard designation; during the land consolidation in 1971, the vineyard area was almost doubled by incorporating neighbouring areas. The Julius-Echter-Berg became famous worldwide through a 1950 Riesling Auslese, which was delivered to the British royal family in London on the occasion of the coronation celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II (1926-2022) in 1953.
