Evergreen honeysuckle is the first vining plant that comes to mind. Or, consider growing jasmine; these bloom from winter through spring. Favorites include fragrant pinkish white Jasminum polyanthum, pink or violet trumpet vine (Clytostoma callistegioides. All are very vigorous, growing 10 to 20 feet long or more. Star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) is yet another evergreen choice, this one with fragrant star shaped flowers. Best wishes with your new vine!
