  • I love boutique family owned wineries so had to stop in and check out this new addition to the Naramata bench. Two thumbs up and definitely recommend stopping in. I tasted an assortment of whites but passed on the Pinot Noirs. All the wines were excellent, and several have won awards, desevedly so. My fave was the Riesling. Bursting with apple and slightly off dry. Just the way I like my Rieslings. The Pinot Gris, Gewurtztraminer and Rose were also excellent. Great service, great back story, lovely outdoor area for tasting and love the bike themed labels on the wines. Look forward to a return visit.

    Lots of enthusiasm for wine & energy for educating me on the ins and outs. Had a great tasting experience and will really enjoy my purchases! Great service!! I would recommend checking out this new, small, family run winery!

    Amazing wine, story and staff. We love going to little wineries and trying new things. The woman there was welcoming and knowledgeable. She took her time with us and answered all of our questions. My husband does Iron Mans and triathlons- when we were turning into the driveway he told me I couldn't buy any more wine...we left with 3 and he wants to get more next time he's here for work and kept talking about their wine club on the drive out!

  • Chain Reaction is one of my favorite wineries in Naramata where friendly competition is actually fierce. The tasting room manager was so friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive to ensure our wine tasting experience was relaxing and super enjoyable. I’d bring my out of town guests to Chain Reaction again and feel good to be treated like VIPs. Thank you!

    We had the pleasure of visiting this gem of a winery in Naramata last weekend and what a wonderful place. We were seated outside on the patio and enjoyed every minute of it. Joel shared his story of how the winery was started and Mel added some interesting facts along the way (everyone had positive energy). However, what blew us away with this winery (besides the delicious wines; notable the 2019 Pinot Gris - Tailwind and the 2019 Pinot Noir - Pendulum) was the passion and genuine love for what they do. At the end of our tastings we couldn't help ourselves but sign up for their wine club membership. We truly hope they thrive and wish them the best!

  • 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.)

    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.

  • What a fantastic day we had here! The wines were amazing, and the staff (and owner) were knowledgeable, approachable and super personable. Smiled all day. Not to mention the view! Simply a must see and visit while in the Okanagan!

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!
