My grapevine has gotten slight out of control and quite big. Tried to untangle it today but it feels like the branches are quite brittle and might snap if I do anything too farsh to them. Can I cut them back quite hard in early spring or can I do it now? Have also a vauge memory that you sould cut off anything above two leaves if there is a bunch of grapes forming on it.

Hi Swedboy, you can prune them back quite a bit now.  Here's some advice I posted here a while back which should help:
