Welcome to Chain Reaction winery!

Why the name Chain Reaction?

The chain references our love of cycling and triathlon

A chain reaction of events brought us to where we are now

A chain reaction occurs while transforming grapes into great wine!

Who are we?

Chain Reaction Winery is owned by Joel and Linda Chamaschuk. After having worked for many years in the information technology sector in the Lower Mainland, we realized we were ready for a new challenge.  We did some brainstorming and tossed a few ideas around, however those ideas became reality when we saw and purchased our Naramata Bench property.  Six months later, we wrapped up our life in Vancouver and moved to Penticton to pursue our dream of starting a vineyard and opening a winery. We got right to work removing the existing apple orchard and prepared to plant grapes in 2019.

Our Wines

The Chain Reaction 2019 vintage was made from purchased grapes in 2019, and from grapes harvested from our leased vineyard in 2020. Our wines were made by winemaker Dwight Sick from Moraine Estate Winery.
