The oven or stove you choose can have a great impact on how you cook and whether the energy you use to heat them is worthwhile. Convection over conventional ovens tends to use more energy but for expert cooks they enjoy the even distribution over heat and can usually cook their food faster and with more control.

Also consider if your home would need separate wine refrigeration storage, or possibly refrigerated drawers for easy access.
