Ubuntu 12.04 has lots of problems with regards to Wine, especially 64 bit; there's a sticky at the top of the forum all about them. You're the first person to mention ugly fonts, though.

My guess is that your problem  might be related to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/wine1.4/+bug/944321, which is one of the bugs listed in the sticky. Towards the bottom of that bug report there are several comments mentioning problems with installing libfreetype6-dev_2.4.8-1ubuntu2_i386.deb on a 64 bit system. That package is  needed to compile 32 bit Wine with Freetype support.  

Try winetricks allfonts.
