Jeremy Walker, General Manager
Jeremy Walker's passion for wine developed from his passion for food, travel and culture at a young age. His food and wine career started through cooking in restaurants, both fine dining and casual. Through utilizing ingredients to create unique flavor combinations he developed a broad knowledge of connecting food and wine together to create harmonious pairings. His biggest passion, traveling and experiencing other cultures, became his largest inspiration in learning about the world's wines. In his words, "wine is a direct representation of culture. Through tasting wine you're able to experience a part of the culture, climate, geology and history of a particular country. Through tasting wine I live in Jackson Hole but experience the world daily." Jeremy's approach to selecting wine offered at Bin22 is through an international lens of representing cultures and allowing guests to experience these cultures in Jackson Hole.
