Default Wine-soaked oak chips?

Brewing a the Dark Belgian Strong Ale recipe from Jamil (Brewing Classic Styles) and wanted to add a little bit of oak to the recipe. I've traditionally soaked oak chips in rum or whisky.

Since Dark Belgians (dubbels and quads) can give a lot of dark cherry and wine-like notes, I was wondering if soaking some oak chips in a red wine might be nice.

Any experience with this? Bad idea? Good idea?

It's fine but try to limit oxygen exposure.
