First, are you using Stretch, or testing/sid?

Did you add the i386 architecture to dpkg?

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt update

You will then need to reinstall wine, and possibly your drivers. If you
are using Nvidia graphics, you *definitely* need to reinstall your
drivers and the proprietary drivers.

# apt install wine wine32 wine64 libwine libwine:i386 fonts-wine

I would also consider installing wine from backports, or directly from
WineHQ. Details on how to install from WineQH are on the WineHQ website.
