Other than actually staying up and lasting a long time, what's the most important aspect of a grape trellis? (I'm making a "trellis making" video for my YouTube channel and thought I might get some better insights here. Thanks in advance!

Making the grapes easy to pick.

Protecting the maturing grapes from sunburn.

Making pruning easier and more intuitive.

Minimum vine care during the season.

I'm sure there are others.

Canopy management, and vine growth habit. Vigor, climate, and pruning style all contribute to trellis layout.

strong enough to take the load of grapes , especially near harvest when the canopy is the heaviest. a means of tighting the trellis wires after harvest.
