According to the developers of Wine, version 4 is stable. I have not yet updated the wine port in MacPorts to that version, nor have I updated the wine-devel or wine-crossover ports since that time, because I want to resolve the MoltenVK issue first.

All Wine ports in MacPorts have similar OS requirements; it looks like they currently build on OS X Mavericks or later.

On macOS Sierra or later, the wine-devel port has MoltenVK support.
