Well...I tell ya...It can be done, but it is alot easier to take cuttings and root them or just bend a young shoot to the ground and wait for it to root and then move that part...
If I was going to move an old vine, I would cut it to the ground now, let it start to grow new shoots then dig and move as much of it as I could...
I found this in a search:
"You probably shouldn't transplant anything now since you are in a region
that is too cold in the winter - cold might heave the newly planted vines
out of the ground. Wait until spring, but do it before the vines start to
grow. Prune the vines back heavily, and get as much of the root system as
you can. Don't put any fertilizer in the hole, but mulch the surface well
with compost or leaf mold, and keep the vine moist."
Hope this helps!
