If you want to make your own libraries then use HISE which runs natively. And I've also released a woodwind library built with HISE, available at
Using Sforzando player in Wine via LinVst is free.

It's one of the two Windows plugins I'm using currently for that kind of content. The other I use is Phenome, which is a multi-channel soundfont player, where you can have 16 midi channels of input to one VSTi, but it is limited to SF2 files.

The biggest draw for me with Linux Sampler was number one, that it's native Linux, and two that it can read GigaSampler, SF2, and SFZ files, so one plugin could handle three formats of sampled files and do it all as a single native Linux plugin.
