As well as local bands playing there will be dozens of Devon wines to taste from six vineyards and great food from local suppliers and local crafts.

Pebblebed is hosting the event at their vineyard in Clyst St George, near Exeter, on September 13/14. Adam Isaac, who made it through to the quarter final stages of BBC's The Voice, with Sir Tom Jones as coach, will be opening the event.

Hospiscare’s Ann Blake said: “This is an exciting new event and will be a fantastic weekend of entertainment, showcasing some of Devon’s finest wines.”

Other artists performing on the Saturday are Julian Piper and Band - internationally recognised blues, local band King Shambles and Gobi, an energetic brass band.  

On Sunday the line up is: Sam Piper, rock singer/songwriter from Exeter, Wildwood Kin, winners of the Open Mic UK, Chris Hoburn, acoustic player and closing the festival is folk singer Steve Knightley.

Other vineyards taking part include: Sharpham, Manstree, Yearlestone, Kenton and Lily Farm.

The event is raising funds for local charity Hospiscare which provides free and specialised nursing to terminally ill people in Exeter, Mid and East Devon.  Hospiscare looks after 700 patients and their families at any one time and needs to raise £4.5m annually to do this.
