if you don't have X then your ability to wine will be limited to text mode programs but you can use

wineconsole cmd then treat it as if it were a windows cmd window

to get a windows command prompt at the bash shell
if you are in X11 and are using an xterm to get a bash shell you can simply

wine program.exe to run the program
