Do you want shade or grapes? Vineyards use two wire for growing and overhead to sit under and drink. Pick one...
Most two wire I see are about six foot; probably a good size for harvesting. Obviously head room is the prime consideration for overhead.
As for materials it's your call; metal heats up a bit much, so wood would be my choice. We are blessed with plenty of red cedar and that would be my choice (for price and durability).
I like spring for planting and early spring at that (before leaf break, so you can prune then as well; later and the vine "bleeds", weakening it...).
And yes, you can move a ten year old vine if you are diligent with timing (fall after leaf drop) soil amendment (organics), and watering (copiously until frost).
I am sorry that I did not tel you where I live, I live in Northwest Ohio.
I plan to grow Concord Grapes, here is one for you which is a good eating grape and can you put in a vine with the Concord grape?
I love grape pie.
What do you think about the Seedless Concords?
Why I ask about the overhead is I see allot of them. Do they take up much room or would it be best to have the 2 wire type trillis?
Where I plan to put them is have them run Nort and South.
