    Don't miss out on this amazing winery! It's small and new but you can tell that Linda and Joel put so much love and work into it. The wine is delicious, but even better, most of them are paired with such wonderful personal stories and we loved hearing all about them. We signed up for the wine club (our first wine club!) because we knew we wanted to be apart of something as special as this Chain Reaction is now on our list of must visit wineries whenever we are in the okanagan!

  • Cycling enthusiast or not this place is absolutely worth checking out. Get yourself a tasting outside and enjoy the fantastic views. These folks are living their dream of making great wine for everyone who enjoys good wine. If you are a cyclist or triathlete you will especially enjoy a bit of banter about the sport with the owners. Go support these nice folks and their award winning wine.

    We had a wonderful time and our hosts were very accommodating. The wines and the view are more than worth the trip. We will be back, particularly to watch this winery change as it matures.

  • 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.

    We loved our visit to Chain Reaction and met the lovely owners. The label back they have chosen spoke to both my mom and I to such a degree it brought tears to our eyes. A very lovely tasting experience and wishing nothing but the best to this couple and their adventure!!!

  • Had a great tasting with Joel, he accommodated the adults and was great with our kids. The award winning wines were a great start to our days. Best of luck in your maiden year!

  • 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 🍷🍇

    Beautiful riesling and pinot gris! Tasting is so much fun here 😄. One of the newer ones out here, but the wine is fantastic. A smaller area so it doesn't have that big industrial feel, very down to earth. I would definitely suggest grabbing bottle with your tasting.

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!
