As anyone who has ever stayed at a Kimpton hotel knows, 5-6pm is the magic hour, when all Kimpton lobbies across the country break out a few bottles of vino and let guests guzzle gratis. (It's a tradition we can really get behind.)

Manhattan's Ink48 has faithfully been pouring glasses of red and white each evening since the program launched several years ago. But now, the hotel is giving other Kimpton properties a run for their money with a new menu of local New York wines, which will be served during wine hour on Wednesdays throughout the month of May.

Kimpton wine director (and overseer of the brand's "Wines That Care" initiative) will continue to hand-pick wineries for all hotels (including Ink48), but this new series is designed to offer guests a taste (heh) for the state in which they're visiting. Not to mention making a case for wines that are produced right here in the Empire State—it's not all about Napa Valley, folks!

Vidal Blanc (Finger Lakes, NY), Red Trail (Hudson Valley, NY) and Regina Maris Chardonnay (North Fork, NY) are just a few of the NY wines that will be showcased during Wednesday night wine hour—though if they really end up doing the trick, you'll also be able to order them through room service.
