Located in the picturesque Treasure Valley area, 6 miles west of Eagle in the prospering village of Star, Idaho you will find a restored 1930's cottage with "old world" charm and character. With only one stoplight in town, you can't miss the well known "Star Wine Bar", Helina Marie's. The welcoming atmosphere starts with it's low ceiling, European style wine room complete with 12' bar area and beautifully crafted wood wine storage laden with a vast selection of small production, estate bottled domestic and import wines. Wines available by taste, glass pour, bottle and case sales. No compromise here...for it's small scale stature you will find highly acclaimed labels such as: Silver Oak, Caymus, Far Niente, Joseph Phelps, Leonetti and many more.The outside areas are just as charming as the inside with a sizable rear patio including a live music stage, tiki bar, and fire pit. Sip your regional favorite while basking in the sunshine under a French market umbrella. Appetizer plates available or withing walking distance of local area restaurants who also deliver to the wine bar.With very friendly clientele and knowledgeable staff you will have a most enjoyable and unique wine experience at Helina Marie's.

So sorry you didn't have a 5 star experience, I will try much harder to accommodate in the future. Can you tell me does your "a bit cold" mean temperature in the building or unfriendly?
