  • 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.

    Amazing newish winery just off the Kettle Valley Trail. Highlight wine for us was the Pinot Gris coupled with the view. Melanie was very knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend.

  • 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!

  • Extraordinary wine. Gewürztraminer and rose are exemptional. Naramata is our "go to" vacation spot and we visited most of the wineries in the past few years. I can say that Chain Reaction will be in our top 3 from now on. Excellent service, beautiful views, original design idea and amazing wine with smooth aftertaste (this is important) I can't believe that other winemakers in the region have been here for way longer and they still can't reach the level of Chain reaction. Highly recommend.

    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.

  • 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!

  • This was our first visit to this winery and we were very impressed with the wines, the knowledgeable staff and a killer view. Great place to take a picnic and just chill with a glass of 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!
