You need to download the Wine source code, extract it, apply the patch
and compile the patched Wine....

You probably want to start here: http://wiki.winehq.org/Recommended_Packages

(I can't find a wiki page with instructions on how to patch Wine... It
basically involve cd /home/user/wine-sourc-code-directory/; patch -p1
< /path/to/patch.diff and then compiling it...)

You should be able to save the patch by using File > save page as from
