Recco: Visit tasting rooms an hour before closing.

Or at least so this Finger Lakes traveller advises:

After the informative session, things at Dr. Frank’s started to break down a bit, but only for the greater good. I now recommend hitting a wine-tasting within an hour of business close, and for this reason: By the end of the day, most of the employees and representatives at a given winery are bound to have sampled a bit of the product, as simple professionalism would dictate. In addition to the intimate and generous “wine flight,” we were treated to good-natured antics from a quip-trading staff, who were combining their cleanup efforts to glue each and every empty bottle to the bottom of the cases they were replaced into—the better to frustrate the inventory taker, I presume. In any case, it was cause for much hilarity at the time…but maybe you had to be there.
