The default is: WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine"
You can change WINEPREFIX to anything you like:

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine_for_myapp"

works and so should: export WINEPREFIX="/path/to/wherever/I/want"
but an easier way to handle this is to use a wrapper script, e.g.

export WINEPREFIX=/where/your/app/is"
wine myapp.exe
