It is
Code:
#whereis wine
And typically wine is not run by itself. You need to give it an application parameter with/without options.
For eg.,
Code:
#wine /windows/games/nfs.exe
Do a '#man wine' for more info.

In a proper distro, an application which is intended to be run thru the GUI--and which is installed with the package manager-- is usually added to the menus somewhere.
WINE is only runnable at the command-line, or--after setting up the associations--by double-clicking on an *.exe file.
