Wine compiles its own fonts based on what you have on your system. If the font its using gives you a headache, it means you didnt have any fonts good enough for it to cache for use and its using a crappy one. Basically. Install a lot more fonts and it usual gets better. Other than that. Figure out exactly what fonts wine is trying to use for that program. And, in the font override section, define something you lik better.
