Subject: Vineyard renovation

Does anyone out there know anything about grape orchards.  Is it worth 
renovating a hobby vineyard that's been dormant for many 
years?  It takes up probably 3/4  acre plot in Massachusset & very 
overgrown.  Could such vines ever again bear pressable fuit?

If rehabilitation is out of the question, do fancy chefs still buy dried 
grapevine to roast fancy food over?  If so, what is a reasonable price to 
ask per pound of grapevine?
