Pieter A. Fisher, a native of Baltimore who was a partner in the Wall Street brokerage house of Goldman, Sachs & Co., died Sunday of prostate cancer at his vineyard in Rutherford, Calif. He was 61.

Mr. Fisher had a home in New York City from 1957 to 1991. His business interests over the years included the Ramco Oil and Gas Co. of Oklahoma City, in which he was a partner.

He and his wife recently bought the vineyard in the Napa Valley, where they built a winery, Clos du Montagne.

He was a graduate of the Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Va., and, in 1953, of Princeton University. He received a master's degree in business administration from the University of Virginia in 1957.

After working for advertising agencies, he joined Goldman, Sachs in 1964. He became a general partner in 1975 and a limited partner in 1986.

In addition to his wife, the former M. Helen Anderson, whom he married in 1978, his survivors include two children from his marriage to Harriet Cooper, which ended in divorce. They are a son, Pieter A. Fisher Jr. of Coral Gables, Fla., and a daughter, Ellen Fisher of Marblehead, Mass. He is also survived by his mother, Katharine Fisher of Cockeysville; a brother, Dr. John R. S. Fisher of Coatesville, Pa.; and one grandchild.
