Not yet, to my understanding. It could be done by some configure option,
"\\Device\\Harddisk2\\Partition1" -> /dev/hdb1
and than file operations like open, read should succeed, if you have
appropriate rights as the user running wine.

If your program needs raw partition access and you feel like allowing wine
to do that access, it can make sense.
