As a young student, along with his brother Oluf, Winge was interested in small mammals, particularly moles, shrews and insectivora. He studied mammalian dentition and produced a comparison of cusp similarities. He worked at the Zoological Museum in the University of Copenhagen from 1885. A major work was his three volumes of E Museo Lundii on the extinct fauna of South America with 75 plates that he drew. He also studied the animal remains found in the kitchen-middens of Denmark.
