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 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!

Our Wines

Our wines are handcrafted in small lots to optimize quality.  For the 2020 vintage and onwards, the majority of the fruit we will be using will be grown by us – here on the Naramata Bench.  Our initial release includes wines from the 2019 and 2020 vintages: Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, sparkling white wine, rose and Pinot Noir.
