We also have sand coloured Sunbrella and were bombed by purple poop (berries ?) the day after installation. We have tried every method mentioned in this thread and had it professionally cleaned. Stains are still prominent.

Peroxide works amazingly well on wine stains... might work as well for berries.
You might try some on one of the stains.
Its best if still fresh but worth a try.

Another handy red wine spill trick...
While still wet blot up what you can then dump salt... lots of salt from a box on the spill and wait 10-15 min while you watch the salt absorb the wine and turn red.
Scoop or vac up the salt.
If any stain remains the peroxide will take care of it...apply....wait and them blot up w paper or cloth towel, rag etc

I've spilled 1/4-1/3 bottle of red on white upholstery...followed the salt & peroxide per above and no evidence of spill yhe next day.

Outside canvas will always develop a patina from bird poop. Especially lighter colours.

The only way to avoid is to replace the canvas with a hardtop.

I like Mrs. TT's idea. Start with the right color and it's not a problem. Maybe a berry colored canvas next time?

Knowing my friends' propensity for spilling wine, I went with the burgundy.

I've had great luck with stain removal with a product called Folex. I've had wine stains on the carpet disappear in front of my own eyes...and I wasn't drinking!
