I don't have this problem, as I don't use wine, but I would bet that
deleting ~/.local/share/mime would do the trick, rather than needing to
delete the whole tree. This will probably still require you to set up
any mime types you changed locally for yourself, but would not lose menu
entries and the like.
To test the theory, I would recommend moving the directory somewhere
else, log out, and log back in, then check if nautilus still has a
problem. If there are settings that are lost by this, and you really
want them back, you can just move the folder back from where you moved
it to. Always back things like this up before you try the nuclear option...
