You're looking for WINEPREFIX env. var.

man wine :

              If set, the content of this variable is taken as the name of the
              directory where wine stores its data (the default is $HOME/.wine
              ).  This  directory is also used to identify the socket which is
              used to communicate with the  wineserver.   All  wine  processes
              using the same wineserver (i.e.: same user) share certain things
              like registry, shared  memory,  and  config  file.   By  setting
              WINEPREFIX  to different values for different wine processes, it
              is possible to run a number of truly independent wine processes.

Thus :

wine --confdir ~/.wine.hostA whatever.exe -> WINEPREFIX=~/.wine.hostA whatever.exe

wine --confdir ~/.wine.hostB whatever.exe -> WINEPREFIX=~/.wine.hostB whatever.exe
