McLain Vineyards is a 12-acre vineyard on 52 acres on the eastern slopes of Walnut Hill, about five miles east of Amity in the newly-formed Eola-Amity Hills AVA, and just north of Walnut Hill Road. It was planted in stages from 1997-2000.

The elevation is 280-400' on a slight north eastern slope. The soil types are Nekia and Yamhill, both volcanic soils described, respectively,  as a reddish, silty-clay loam 3-5' over weathered and broken basalt and reddish silty-clay loam with basalt rocks at 3-5'. Both types are over solid volcanic basalt.  Its location on the lee side of the Eola-Amity Hills keeps the site very warm.
