In short, you're going to cultivate you wild grapes and the structures I would recommend are the same as for table grapes. If you don't keep them cultivated they will take down the trellis just as they did the trees. So I suggest you look into cultivation of table grapes and build a structure that you think you will be able to maintain.
Thanks, Rob. I was also thinking of keeping the downed trees as a low level trellis and prune the vines. Some of them are quite thick -- 1.5 - 2 inches in diameter. That might be the way to go. I appreciate I need to keep them under control.
Thanks for your help.
