    What class-goers are saying about this instructor:
    “Mr. Fisher was friendly, informed, passionate, and took appropriate and interesting risks in order to try to introduce the class to the experience of wines in Spain. It was not simply a wine tasting and I appreciate that. I would take another class with him again.”
