Memamary, it is very difficult to kill a grape vine, one really has to work at it. Here is my suggestion: If there are any side "branches" wait until your early Spring, then cut off 5" cuttings, bare the bottom end 1/2 around, dip them in rooting hormone, and either stick same in a glass bottle, with just water, or in a sand/soil combo, with a cutoff soda bottle on top to keep them moist. Three months later you should have rooted cuttings!

Grape vines are very resilient. I don't know of any way to make it grow back together for this season, but it should recover nicely for next season. Oopsie.

All I can suggest is what Philip already commented on - you can try grafting it back together. Research how to graft grapevines. It depends on how much of the vine you have cut off, though - usually grafting is for small pieces.
