Wine is still being brewed.  We are still discussing how it should be

The best I know to tell you is to get the source (I quote


It should also be available from any other site that mirrors
For more download locations, see These
locations also hold pre-built documentation packages in various
formats: wine-doc-html.tar.gz, wine-doc-txt.tar.gz, wine-doc.pdf.gz
cd to the directory where you unpack it, read the README, and carry on.
Please read past the QUICKSTART to the REQUIREMENTS, then if you like
