Ice Wine

Unless you have magical ice powers, using this Houdini Wine Chilling Carafe is one of the easiest ways to chill your wine.

Now and then there's a person who is either a superhero or a magician, and this person has magnificent superpowers that utilize the power of ice.  

This person, when he or she wants to drink wine, simply has to touch a bottle of wine to chill it. They can transfer their ice powers to the bottle of the wine, sending an instant burst of cold into the bottle and therefore cooling the wine.

But then there's pretty much everyone else. All of us people going about our lives without the ability to chill wine with superpowers. But that's okay because while we might not have superpowers, at least we've got this Houdini Wine Chilling Carafe, and we all know Houdini was a magician, so it's basically the same as being able to use magic ourselves.

Houdini Wine Chilling Carafe

Wine Chilled the "Natural" Way
The Houdini Wine Chilling Carafe keeps wine chilled the natural way. (No plastic ice chamber! No freezable chemicals!) It’s a more effective chilling carafe because the stainless ice chamber is a highly efficient cold-transfer material, far superior to glass or plastic.

Wine Served at the Ideal Drinking Temperature
White wine or rose from the fridge loses its chill and taste appeal quickly. At 80 degrees, the wine will seem too warm in 15 minutes or less. With the Houdini Wine Chilling Carafe, wine drinkers can enjoy a bottle of chilled wine at leisure—for 90 minutes or more. The carafe holds a full 750 ml bottle. The beautiful design of the carafe brings a touch of elegance to serving white wine indoors or out.

Vendor Details


Riki Kane
New York, NY
Metrokane was founded in 1983 by Riki Kane who had been an advertising copywriter and a syndicated journalist, creator of the popular newspaper word game, “Wordy Gurdy.” While travelling in Mexico, she purchased a manual citrus juicer, which she brought home to squeeze her morning orange juice. She was surprised to find that manual juicers had been extinct in the U.S. since the advent of electric citrus juicers in the ‘50’s. Convinced that the manual juicer is superior to the electric kind, she re-introduced it to the American market with a classic retro design called “The Mighty OJ.” Metrokane’s Mighty OJ Juicer was an immediate success in department and specialty stores around the country.

Initially, Ms. Kane ran the business from her apartment—expanding her line of juicers and fighting a long, but ultimately successful legal battle against Mighty OJ imitations (called “knock-offs” in the industry). As the company expanded, she was joined in the business by her husband, Bob Larimer, who had recently sold his advertising agency to a large company.
