You must be running stretch/stable.  Here are the available versions:

https://packages.debian.org/src:wine

It looks like buster has 4.0-1 available, as does stretch-backports.
If you are not yet ready to upgrade to Buster, then stretch-backports is
the way to go.

In case you need some more information on backports:
