Software Manager - enter the word wine in the search box and click the uninstall button.

It's only about half a gig though. Do you need the space? Or some other concern? (you don't have to answer)

Hi jackjps,

That would depend on how you originally installed Wine?!

If you have Wine 1.8.1 or 1.9.3 installed, then navigate to Menu -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager
  • Type wine in the search field (installed Wine elements will be highlighted green)
  • Click the green square and select "Mark for Complete Removal", window will open asking you to confirm marking the packages to remove. Click "Mark"
  • In Synaptic Package Manager window, click Apply
If you have an older Wine version installed, then you may find it easier to use (as others mention) Software Manager.
