You could even build a trellis over the roof to keep the vines at distance. You would have to inspect the roof from time to time and falling leaves might be a problem for the drainage. If you are just building your roof you could think of a structure that helps you to net easily in autumn (I don't know if there is an amount of fruit you can plant that the birds are so stuffed that they can't eat anymore).
Grape wine leaves are used for cooking like dolmades etc. you might either sell them prepared or like this.
