In the whole system the fonts are antialiased and instead in wine they are sharp. Unfortunately my monitor is fairly bad showing sharp fonts and so it is really hard to read.

I tried winetricks fontsmooth=gray, but it seems having no effects.
I tried installing tahoma and liberation fonts as my system configuration should replace fonts with their metric equivalent free variants, the winecfg font DID change, but it is not antialiased.

It is a bug? I am missing something? What can I try?

Wine version? If it's not 1.6, upgrade. There have been changes to how Wine handles font smoothing since 1.4. If this is a problem in 1.6, you may be seeing one of these bugs:

I am using wine 1.6, and it looks like Bug 23114... oh well.

Edit:
Reading the comments it seems that
Code:
xrdb -query | grep -vE 'Xft\.(anti|hint|rgba)' | xrdb


Solves the problem, I am not sure why yet...
