Jonathan Riddell has sent me a reply regarding the wine status in Ubuntu.
I am also putting that message below.
I have nominated Scott Ritchie as maintainer for wine in Ubuntu.
I think we need to put up a proposal for wine for Ubuntu.
Any Ideas, guys.

I don't know of anyone who actively works on wine in the Ubuntu
archives.  I'd recommend posting a proposal to ubuntu-motu for more
regular updates.  But updates must follow the ubuntu release schedule.
