How can I remove Wine entirely from Ubuntu 13.10?

I have tried

sudo apt-get autoclean wine 
sudo apt-get remove wine 
sudo apt-get clean wine

but Wine has not been removed yet.

Try this command:

dpkg -l '*wine*' | tail -n+6 | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f2

It should list all installed wine packages on your system.

You can then run apt-get remove on them.

This command combines the above command and apt-get remove
(read what packages will be removed carefully):

sudo apt-get remove $(dpkg -l '*wine*' | tail -n+6 | tr -s ' ' | cut -d' ' -f2 | tr '\n' ' ')
