Usually Gentoo uses the last tarball, but you have to at least once a 
week update the portage tree using

emerge sync

Also to use a non stable version of wine on Gentoo, you have to add a 
line in /etc/portage/package.keywords

app-emulation/wine ~x86

This should do it, after emerge -u -D wine you will have the lastest 
wine installed.
