Mount it using samba then point Wine there mapping one of the drives to that mount in winecfg.

If you can't convince this app to use disk instead of UNC path, then it might or might not work:

mkdir -p ~/.wine/dosdevices/unc/server
ln -s /mnt/server_folder ~/.wine/dosdevices/unc/server/folder

Where "/mnt/server_folder" is the share mounted with Samba.
