Short answer: nope.

Wine doesn't emulate the Intel processor, it only tries to provide Windows 
compatibility on Intel (and compatible) processors. Since Macs use PowerPC 
CPUs, not Intel or AMD CPUs, it won't work for you. It would be the 
equivalent of trying to install Windows on your Mac. It's simply not 
designed to work there.
