Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering a virtual version of our incredible Sourdough Course!

Now that we are all being forced to slow down and stay at home, it’s the perfect time to sit back and relax with some freshly baked bread and a nice glass of wine. With our online Sourdough Course we bring the Tranquil Vale Sourdough experience right into your kitchen and help you reconnect with friends during this period of isolation. 

Do it with friends, or jump on one of our open dates. Watch the full process happen right before your eyes. Connie will take you on the journey from starter to sourdough in real time – get all the tips and tricks and have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. You will also receive a sourdough recipe book and starter care guide so that you can go away feeling 100% confident to start baking! 

If you have time on your hands, or you horded too much flour and now you are wondering what to do with it, then this is the course for you.


Whether it’s for a romantic getaway, a team-building retreat, or just to do something a little different out in the fresh country air – a sourdough masterclass may be exactly what you’re looking for.

There are options to match whatever kind of experience you are looking for – just scroll down to check out what might suit you and your group.

When you’re ready to book, just give us a call at 02 4930 6100 or email

All levels of Sourdough classes come with a free wine tasting of Tranquil Vale's small-batch estate-grown wine.


This is designed for large groups and is delivered a bit like a mini-lecture. 

In your Sourdough Demonstration, you will learn how you grow a loaf of bread from starter to sourdough.

You will also get to witness a pre-prepared loaf go into the oven, and get to taste a piece of it along with your wine at the end.

Demonstrations can be held at your offices or on our vineyard.

45-60 minutes

And each of you will even get your own starter to take home so you can do it yourself at home.

The most intensive and luxurious option, the Sourdough Masterclass is ideal if you want to have a truly unique, and personal experience. Couples love doing the Masterclass together – those who bake together, stay together!

You will get to bake your own bread with full hands-on training, while also receiving your own starter in a jar to take home.

Afterwards, you will get a private tour with the winemaker and viticulturist and learn all about the award-winning unique wines we make at Tranquil Vale.

Finally, you’ll be treated to a scrumptious 3-course gourmet lunch in our very own family-run home on the vineyard – where we will get to enjoy the fresh bread and wine!
