Parthenocissus vitacea
Woodbine is quite similar to its genus-mate, Virginia Creeper.  Both are in the grape family -  Vitaceae. Woodbine seems like a cross between Virginia Creeper and grapes.  It has the leaves of Virginia Creeper, but the tendrils of grape plants.  It has the viney-ness of both species.

Grape-like tendrils

The leaves turn a beautiful color of red in the fall
Leaves are similar to Virginia Creeper
