You can rename .wine to anything you want, but you will then have to edit your menu entries and desktop links so WINEPREFIX= points to the new location. If you run your programs from the command line, you will have to include the wineprefix variable:

> WINEPREFIX=/home/user/whatever wine program.exe

You can have as many different wineprefixes as you like--just remember to specify which one you're using each time. (If you don't specify the wineprefix, Wine will use .wine.)
