I would suggest after harvesting grapes when leaves are starting to look like they are tired and going to drop, I'm not an expert on fruit growing in the USA so someone else may tell you slightly different but it seems fairly obvious that you can't prune before this.

The very very end of the growing season where you live. When the plant is spent for the season and no new growth is going to happen for the next few months.

How old and how large is the vine? Google pruned grape vine pictures. This will give you a good idea of what to do. You just don't cut the vine down to nothing.
