  • New winery on the Naramata bench. Amazing lake views. Kind enough to accommodate a tasting for 4 without a reservation. Dog friendly as well.

    Stopped by Chain Reaction on a mid-week getaway and was so impressed with this lovely winery and it's story!! The owners were hard at work picking right in the front vineyard the day we visited. Gave us a lil bunch of Pinot 😋 Tanya is so friendly, knowledgeable and has a great connection with us visitors 🤗 Fantastic view... delicious wines... highly recommend stopping by this jewel on the Naramata Bench 🍷🍇

  • This Naramata Bench winery is the 'new kid on the block' having just opened in the spring of 2022. I dropped by to see Mel, an old friend who is now the tasting room manager. I was just going to say hello and drop back in a week to do a proper tasting, but there was a lull and she insisted I needed to try their wines. I am glad I did. They were all quite impressive, especially for a new winery, but that only speaks to the talent of their winemaker, Dwight Sick. Owners Joel and Linda dropped by and filled me in on their story. I left with their Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Rosé, and two vintages of Pinot Noir. Be sure to give them a try when you are in the area. (Hint - be sure to try the Riesling and Gewürztraminer - you won't be disappointed.)

    Wine tasting, a good learning experience, Melanie was very knowledgeable at explaining the different types and subtle differences between the various wines.

  • Great wines, great views and wonderful hosts. Looking forward to follow the progression of the wines. Joined the Wine Club on our first visit and have done a second visit with the same experience.

    Had a lovely vacation here and would come back to stay anytime. The location is great, the hosts are amazing. The accommodation is excellent and very comfortable. It is in the perfect spot to explore this wine country. We highly recommend them! Can’t wait to taste their wine when in production.

  • We had a planned wine tour in Naramata, but as we were not paying attention to the time, a couple of the vineyards we wanted to visit had closed. On our back to Penticton, our taxi driver had noticed their road sign and they were still open! All six of us enjoyed every sample, and we were lucky enough to meet the owners and manager on their beautiful scenic hillside.

    Excellent award-winning wines! Every wine they have is great. Also, an inspirational story about a couple executing on their life goal to have a winery. Everything is done by hand, in small batches, with great care. The result is exceptional wine at very good prices, especially if you are a wine club member. I am confident they will win more awards because the wines are terrific.

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 fell in love with our Naramata Bench property.  Six months later, we moved to Penticton to pursue our dream of starting a vineyard and opening a winery. It’s been a wild ride ever since then!
