What features, that wine needs, are provided by a local FS but not
by NFS?  (Serious question, maybe a workaround can be found.)

Meanwhile, would something like this work?
(Suppose /var is on a local drive.)

$ sudo mkdir /var/wine
$ sudo chmod 1777 /var/wine
# NOTE: Only the above two steps use sudo.
# The rest is as a normal user.
$ rm -rf ~/.wine
$ mkdir -p /var/wine/$USER/.wine
$ ln -s /var/wine/$USER/.wine ~
