Winter/Autumn Harvest plant that uses a trellis?

I have cleared and replanted one of my 4x10 ft raised beds with onion seeds (not sure how successful this will be, but I had them, so they're free), various beets, and brussels sprouts last week. I have a 6' tall trellis that isn't in use right now, and unsure what to plant on it besides peas. Any suggestions?

In the PNW if that matters. Dry and in the 80's now, but wet and cool during the winter.

kiwi, passionflower/fruit and nasturtiums are the first things that comes to mind.

kiwi can be a late and very long harvest , so good for winter fruit. but it does take a long time to establish and you need to have a few- male and female.

nasturtiums love the extra water and mild temps in the pnw, they can get super huge and live through the winter, continually blooming and reseeding.

grapes are awesome too =)
