HEARTS' BLOOD IN A BOTTLE If you've ever dreamed about escaping the rat race for the rural pleasures of wine-grape growing, LIFE IN VINE is required viewing. This survey of a year in the vineyards of Oregon's Willamette Valley shows just how tough, industrious, and just plain masochistic you have to be to devote your life to producing fine wineparticularly wine from the fickle fruit of the pinot noir vine. Filmmaker Matt Giraud knows his wine as well as he knows his lenses and light meters. The result is a rueful tribute to the self-sacrificing souls who give their hearts' blood to produce the wines we so thoughtlessly consume. Debuts on KCTS-9 at 7:30 p.m. Mon., Oct. 6; Repeats at 10:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 12, and 12:30 p.m. Sun., Oct. 26.
