By "Direct3D 10 and 11 support" do they mean the whole thing, or the usual half-support which is good for the 3 most popular games and everything else works in a broken fashion, sometimes with regressions between minor versions?

Case in point: Can I run this game using Wine?

That was last tested against Wine 1.7.17 (development branch) on the 24/04/2014. Since that testing is very old, it is quite possible that will install and run now.

There are two branches of Wine, one is the stable branch that receives bug fixes only and the other is the development branch that is released usually every other week.

So if you are worried about regressions, use the stable branch.
