"I enjoyed the course very much.  It combined two subjects that I am very interested in and David Ingnatius's use of his own experience, both a a journalist and as a novelist, gave me welcome insight into both the real and fictional world of spies. Please congratulate Mr. Ignatius for putting
together a fascinating experience."

The Bordeaux MasterClass was an exceptional way to gain an appreciation for these wines from an expert using a multimedia format. The class has provided me with an enthusiasm for Bordeaux fueled by an understanding of the its rich wine making history, the process of its creation, and its geography.
