Default Yeast starter suggestions?

Hi,
I'm going to be fermenting wine shortly and I was wondering what the best ingredient would be to add to the starter. I've heard that some people squeeze an orange in the mixture. Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated.

You really don't need a starter, but sugar water does work well, mix some of your must in it to assure compatibility.
