You don't have internet at home? That's very unusual for this day and age, but no comment there.

Anyway, if you want you can download the source code at With the source code, you can extract and compile wine.

Here's a step by step so that you don't get confused, say you downloaded the source code 'wine-1.0.tar.bz2' to /home/myname/Downloads. Then the steps are:
- tar -xjvf ~/Downloads/wine-1.0.tar.bz2
- cd wine-1.0
- ./configure
- make depend && make
- make install

Give it a try! ;)
