Guiding several bines sideways through a lattice and one died

Hi All,
I'm new here but I have a question if you don't mind. I was given a plant this spring and it is growing nicely. It has reached the top of my wood lattice, so I've been weaving the bines sideways along the top every few days.

I thought I've been gentle with them but maybe not. One of them wilted and died literally overnight. I can't believe how quickly the entire vine died all the way to the ground...are they really this frail? Should I give up on trying to weave them through the lattice?
