The name Catalina Sounds evolved from the majestic Catalina flying boats that played a vital role across the South pacific during and after World War II. 

Catalina Sounds is proud to be 1 of 50 wineries that are certified by Appellation Marlborough Wine (AMW). AMW was introduced in 2018 to protect the reputation of Marlborough wine. The primary aim is to protect the origin, authenticity and integrity of wines produced in Marlborough. AMW promotes wines that are made from 100% Marlborough grapes, grown sustainably from Marlborough vineyards and bottled in New Zealand.


For consumers, it means that they know Catalina Sounds wines are made with authenticity, integrity and provenance. Their vineyards are 100% certified by Sustainable Winegrowing NZ and meet globally recognised standards.

Catalina Sounds produces wines that are true to the region and their  vineyard sites while building an extra textural dimension. 


Their ability to thrive speaks to the terroir of Sound of White.
