Wine is an X application.  You have to know how to work X to work Wine.
The avaiable resolutions are those which are defined in XF86Config
(which has a nice long man page) that the hardware is not incapable of.
If more than one is available at the current color depth, you can cycle
through them with control-alt-keypad + or control-alt-keypad -.

To find out more, kill X,

startx &> ~/oof
and read ~/oof, which will tell you where it is getting the XF86Config
file and what resolutions are available, among other interesting things.
