JFTR, regarding
http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/amd64/wine1.6/filelist there should
be menu entries:


Those aren't available?

"Forcing changes

This is not usually necessary and may not work anyway; logging out of
the Xfce session and back in always works.

If the menu is not automatically updated with your changes, try

xfdesktop --reload

If that doesn't work, try

killall -HUP xfdesktop" - https://wiki.xfce.org/howto/customize-menu
