  • What a great experience! We loved the stories that went with each wine, fabulous wine from white to rose to red! The best labels as well…that’s great marketing, drew me to your winery. Lastly you were exceptional during the tasting!!! Will be ordering again.

    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!!!

  • What a great addition to the Naramata Bench wineries. Joel and Linda have crafted some very fine wines to add to Naramata tours. The Pinot Gris both 2019 and 2020 are some of the best I have tasted on the bench. The Pinot Noir is also a keeper. I also tasted the Gewurztraminer which really impressed me with its floral notes and depth of minerality. Welcome to the Bench and keep on growing - and for all of you out there looking for the next great winery - drop by and enjoy Joel, Linda, Mel and Dwight and the wines they have crafted 🙂

    Great wines but a little hot outside. Service was awesome. Learned a lot about their wines and how they got started. A must visit.

  • 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 stumbled upon this great family owned winery just off Naramata road. We rode along the KVR trail to visit a few places and this one is conveniently located just a block off the path. Joel, the owner, is a triathlete and cyclist and has created his wines inspired by his passion for riding. We sat out on the lovely patio overlooking gorgeous views of grape vines and the lake. While the views are magical, the wine steals the show. Very reasonably priced for the quality. We visited during the Ironman week and had the opportunity to taste the sparkling wine (in celebration of the finishers) which is not generally available. We’d buy a case if we were not traveling back to the states, we settled for 2 bottles to enjoy during our vacation here. The Pinot noir and rosè were equally outstanding, those will be coming home with us. Visiting the smaller family run wineries can be hit or miss, this place is a home run with everything we tasted! Highly recommend making this one of your wine stops.

    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.

  • 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!

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!
