Yes. Uninstall wine first using your package management system (synaptic etc.). Then once it has been removed check to see if the .wine folder is still there in your Home folder. If so, delete it. Also, don't forget to delete the .winetrickscache folder which is also in the Home folder.
If after that you can still see wine in your applications menu then there will be 1 more folder to get rid of located in ~/home/.local/share/applications. Delete the wine stuff in there manually also.
