Wine "should" default to your screen size , however you can pass the screen parameters you require
Run "winecfg" and on graphics tab make sure you have tick in "allow window manager to control the windows"

You can pass the required screen parameters to wine
See: ... ne20001222

Scroll down to about line 259
259 The <parameter>--desktop</parameter> option geometry info in
260 the standard X11 geometry format, e.g., "640x480" for a
261 desktop window 640 pixels wide and 480 pixels high. You can
262 also in theory specify the coordinates of the upper left
263 corner of the desktop window, but your window manager may
264 choose to override that request. The following invocation
265 would open a new 640 x 480 desktop window at coordinates
266 (10, 25):
267 <screen>
268 <prompt>$</prompt> <userinput>wine --desktop 640x480+10+25 foo.exe</userinput>
269 </screen>
270 </para>
271 <para>
272 More commonly, you'll leave off the starting coordinates,
273 and only use the height and width:
274 <screen>
275 <prompt>$</prompt> <userinput>wine --desktop 640x480 foo.exe</userinput>
276 </screen>
