Assuming you have healthy scion (seyval) buds growing from the base of your vine, (latent buds) let those shoots elongate and secure the most vertical shoots to a stake as soon as they are long enough. Those buds are important if your trunk was killed last winter.
If those are grafted vines and your new shoots are comming from the roots, then you could have a problem. Let me know, I can tell you what your options are.

Those vines that died may still be alive under ground and may produce shoots the roots, wait and see. If anything comes up from the roots you will be able to use those too.
I just got hit by frost in my lower vineyard, 500 four year old Merlot. Major bummer. I needed all those latent buds, as those vines suffered major winter kill. I do not know if they will recover now.
Does anyone know, is there a finite number of latent buds at the base of a trunk?
