Install a custom wine to /usr/bin/wine-custom or /opt/bin/wine-custom,
define WINEPREFIX for your program to be $HOME/.yourapplication/wine,
and add a wrapper. Should be pretty straightforward.

Be careful with services though, since wine automatically shuts down
when no applications are running. You'll need to have a tray
application or something running to prevent that.
