My solution is not likely applicable to everyone but this is what I do since I upgrade WINE rather regularly and little else. Ever since Wine-Staging became available I have been using Dugan's install script that builds Wine-Staging as well as his other one for Winetricks. Because they build slackpackages they are easily uninstalled provided you recall the exact version name, or enough of it to Tab auto-complete. I keep around old Wine packages in /tmp for awhile as a fallback so rather than trust my memory I just use an old KDE app from v3x, KPackage, that I have installed in /opt, to view packages, their versions, their files and locations and a simple "Uninstall" radio button that engages "removepkg" for the selected package(s). Then I "installpkg" the newer version. Done.

Why not just use upgradepkg? Or look at what's installed in /var/log/packages/wine-* if you really want to uninstall first?

It's just a preference I have grown used to because I can see it happening as it unfolds instead of any assumptions. Certainly upgradepkg would work also.
