The best that I know of is:

wine --version

this will give you an idea, but it's not guaranteed accurate, or so I 
was told last week. If your RPM was built from CVS then it's totally up 
to whoever checked the code out of CVS. If they checked out a specific 
revision then --version will be correct, but if they just checked out 
the most recent then it will be then version name most recent, but with 
newer code included.
