According to the Talmud, the wearing of the ephod atoned for the sin of idolatry on the part of the Children of Israel.
The biblical description also adds that there were two engraved gems over the shoulder straps (like epaulettes), made from shoham (by Jewish tradition heliodor) and with the names of the 12 tribes written upon them, six on each side gem. The rabbinical sources differ as to the order in which the tribes were named on the jewels (Sotah 36a) :
During the creation of the ephod label several options were possible :
Either go for simplicity in a minimalist style or make it tell a story and carry a message.
Stuck for months facing a blank page I made the choice to make it tell a story !
Then I decided that the story will be based on spirituality, around the Ephod and my logo that represents a Dove. A bird full of meaning and secrets…like wine itself !
A passage in the Book of Exodus describes the Ephod as an elaborate garment worn by the high priest (Kohen Gadol), and upon which the Hoshen (breastplate) containing Urim and Thummim, rested.
As described in the Bible the Ephod was woven out of gold, blue and purple.
This is precisely the color code that I chose to create the label of the wine named REGESH !

The Ephod : An elaborate garment
Desiring to remain faithful to the biblical source I therefore evoked this construction on both sides of the labels as you will see on the left and on the right of the Dove.
The Dove represents spirituality
and it is she who has the mission from heaven to draw abundance and blessings to pour them on humanity.
The symbols being very numerous I leave the continuation of these esoteric and deep meanings to all lovers of EPHOD wines !
