1999-2012

After the creation of the company

“Les Vins IDS”, specialist in the production of Grand Crus and Prestige cuvees in Bordeaux region, David SUISSA, still looking for new experiences, has set new challenges: exploring new latitudes, new microclimates, new terroirs, and new varieties of grapes. Because of its vines of ancestral reputation, Israel emerged as evident.

2013-2014

That’s how this ambitious project was born:

Creating and branding under EPHOD Winery a range of Israeli wines whose vineyards are implemented at the edge of the Desert of Judah, Galil Elyone and Ramat Hagolan. These terroirs yield very complex, elegant and authentic wines.
Divided in 3 distinct groups of products:

2015-2016

Pleasure Wines: built around a great TAL Rosé coming from noble grape varieties: Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is more likely to offer conviviality, to be drunk chilled.
Flag ship Wines : under the name of GESHER and REGESH, coming from noble grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Those wines are very pleasant wine, aged in oak barrels, full of complexity but very round, soft and elegant.
“Prestige Cuvee”: under the name of EBIATAR, coming from noble grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon and very matured Petit Verdot. This wine is oak-aged 18 months inside 100% new french barrels, tannic and well structured is gratified with an exceptional balance, concentration and complexity.

2016-2018

The wine benefits from a ton of indisputable details and numerous experiments that have been carried out along the centuries and that are still executed today through experimentation, science and technicality.
