Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Downloading a file to install is the Windows way of doing things. In linux we use repositories, the instructions for ubuntu (which Mint relies on) are at: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

However, adding repositories is one of the most crucial areas that Mint differs from ubuntu, so you'll want to follow these (derived) instructions instead:

1) Open Synaptic Package Manager
2) Go to Settings --> Repositories
3) Click New
4) set the uri to "http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt"
5) add the distribution line, depending on which version of mint you're using:
Mint --> Distro line
Gloria --> jaunty
Felicia --> intrepid
Elyssa --> hardy
6) set the section to "main"
7) click reload, then install wine
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header
Hint - use a google search including the search term site:forums.linuxmint.com
