It's not quite that simple, especially if you have a 64-bit computer. See here

Also if it is installed, Debian doesn't by default install any shortcuts for it or gui add-ons for it, so you'd have to launch wine manually from console.

Actually, you wouldn't launch Wine alone, but with the program that will use it. It's easiest to create menu entries like this:
wine "/home/david/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/MorinusWinEng/morinus.exe"
