Oh, you never have to reinstall Wine itself. Just move/remove the directory containing your entire fake Windows drive, which is ~/.wine. (This is known as the wineprefix) If you do that, Wine will create a fresh prefix and act as if it's completely newly installed.
Using a command like WINEPREFIX=path/to/newprefix wine command.exe will install/run Wine under a different prefix directory (and actually create it if that prefix doesn't exist yet).
