The winery is located in the city of Würzburg in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. It was founded in 1576 by Prince-Bishop Julius Echter von Mespelbrunn (1545-1617) on the model of the Hospice de Beaune. He acquired the "Judengarten" outside the old town for this purpose. The prince-bishop transferred sufficient income and extensive property to his foundation to cover its tasks during his lifetime, which included vineyards, among others in the world-famous Würzburger Stein site, as well as extensive agricultural and forestry properties. To this day, a home for the elderly, a hospice, two palliative wards, a nursing school and other welfare facilities are maintained. The foundation's task of caring for the sick was taken over by Klinikum Würzburg Mitte at the beginning of 2017. The 250-metre-long cellar corridor, laid out in 1699 by Antonio Petrini, is the longest wooden barrel cellar in Germany and lined with 220 oak barrels. There is the company's own vinotheque "Weineck Julius Echter" opposite the main entrance to the Juliusspital. The administrator is Dipl. Ing. agr. Horst Kolesch, as cellar master Dipl. Oenologist Nicolas Frauer and Helmut Klüpfel are responsible.

The vineyards cover about 180 hectares of vineyards and are spread all over Franconia in the following municipalities: Bürgstadt with Mainhölle; Dettelbach with Berg-Rondell; Escherndorf with Lump; Iphofen with Domherr and Julius-Echter-Berg; Randersacker with Pfülben and Teufelskeller; Rödelsee with Küchenmeister; Thüngersheim with Johannisberg; Volkach with Karthäuser; and Würzburg with Abtsleite, Festungsblick im Monopol, Innere Leiste, Pfaffenberg and Stein. The Vogelsburg monastery was maintained by Augustinian sisters and handed over to the Juliusspital Foundation along with the vineyards in 2011. The white wine varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris are cultivated, as well as red wine varieties, mainly Pinot Noir, but also Domina and others. After fermentation, the wines are stored for a long time on the fine lees. Maturation takes place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and large oak barrels, some of which are over a hundred years old. Organic wines are also produced from the three hectares of vines at Vogelsburger Pforte. The winery is a member of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates).
