Default oxygen injection for wine yeast

Was wondering if it would be beneficial to inject O2 into the wine before adding the yeast? I do this with making beer to help oxygenate the wort before pitching the yeast and was wondering if I could do the same with wine.

I've never bothered. Wine tends to ferment fairly quickly even with a small amount of yeast and I don't want to risk over-heating.
