Typically it is installed in a hidden directory in your users home directory. For example, /home/badgerbox76/.wine/drive_c. Remember, it's likely a hidden folder, so don't forget the period '.' before 'wine' in your path.

Is it critical you 'uninstall' it. You could always just delete the directory if you are concerned about disk space. Also, I would try running the CD you installed the software from, because often times the CD will have a 'remove' option.
