That's because almost all packages depends on other packages. In a
console you can write "apt-cache depends wine" to get what packages
wine depends on. Download and install them first.
That's one of the reason using a package manager and a Internet
connection make it so easy, it download all the dependencies to.

For me it gives (but could show other result for you):

jonas at Tor:~$ LANG=en apt-cache depends wine
  Depends: wine1.2
