Founded in 2014 by Francis and Kathleen Rooney, Bodega 202 strives to handcraft small batch vintages from old mountain plots, focusing on quality over quantity. The Rooney’s Rioja journey began while walking the Camino de Santiago, “Saint James Way.” There is no better way to experience Rioja, the land, the wine, the deep history, and the warmth of the people than walking through the Ebro Valley. Step by step, Francis and Kathleen fell in love with Rioja.
Bodega 202 winemaking blends the unique terroir and elegant aromas of the traditional tempranillo together with a bold and innovative approach to impart our own signature on each vintage. Our family and our team maintain a deep reverence for viticulture recognized worldwide in one word “Rioja”. It is a very personal and joyful endeavor.
Let us share our passion, our ambition, and our wines with you. Bodega 202 is located just outside of the medieval, fortified town of Laguardia in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa.
