Default Aerating Wine?

When brewing beer it's good to get lots of o2 in the wort for the yeast. Is it good to do the same for wine?


Thanks, Matt

Yes, but not as necessary.

Important thing to remember when making beer you boil it for 60-120 minutes depending on the recipe. that drives most if not all of the o2 of the water. since you are not generally boiling the juices or fruit you are using for wine or the water you are adding, there is actuaally quite a bit of o2 already present.
