[Wine] Deleting the hidden .wine folder in OSX... Help!

How do I delete the hidden .wine folder on OS X if rm -rf doesn't work, I can't cd to it, and Houdini can't view it?

I'm trying to uninstall wine from OS X and I need to delete the virtual C drive. If I "locate wine" in the terminal, it reveals that the virtual C drive is in /username/.wine. rm -rf and sudo rm -rf have no effect. I can't cd to /username/.wine, it tells me "file or directory does not exist." In Houdini, it doesn't show a .wine folder under the user directory.

Any advice on how to remove the folder? There's a good deal of disk space locked up in windows programs I'd like to free up.

Thanks for your time.
