What to do with grape vine

OH bought this grape vine a few years ago and it lives in the greenhouse over winter then goes outside in the summer, but it never does very much (can't expect that much in North Scotland). This year I'm thinking of leaving it in the greenhouse as I won't be growing tomatoes and will have room for it, and it seems time for some proper attention

I intend to repot it in a week or so (just off on hols) and wonder if it would benefit from a prune. Does it need a particular type of compost btw? There are good strong shoots on the longest stem on the right but I'm not sure if that's the way to go. I know they like cool roots so I've put some shading that should stop the sun from hitting the pot too much.

I don't expect fruit at all and ideally can't really let it get huge so any advice would be welcome. I have no idea what sort of vine it is as OH doesn't remember and we didn't keep the label....
