Considering that you are on an amd64 system, I suppose when you tried to
install wine apt pulled-in the wine64-bin package whose only purpose is
to display the following informational message:

| This is the wine64-bin helper package, which does not provide wine itself,
| but instead exists solely to provide the following information about
| enabling multiarch on your system in order to be able to install and run
| the 32-bit wine packages.
| The following commands should be issued as root or via sudo in order to
| enable multiarch (the last command installs 32-bit wine):
|   # dpkg --add-architecture i386
|   # apt-get update
|   # apt-get install wine-bin:i386
| Be very careful as spaces matter above.  Note that this package
| (wine64-bin) will be removed in the process.  For more information on
| the multiarch conversion, see: http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/HOWTO

In order to actually install wine, you just need to follow the
aforementioned instructions.
