my 15 year old grapevines have been pruned each year but I now realise they haven't been pruned hard enough. It is too late to prune them now ie mid May with leaves coming out? Or should I wait till winter.

    Too late now for major pruning of old wood but you can keep the new growth in check this year. As a starting point prune each new shoot at two leaves beyond any fruit/flower cluster. Prune out side shoots as they appear. Next winter you can carry out major reshaping. I would recommend trying hard wood cuttings when you hard prune as an insurance policy.
