How did you add the wine PPA? If you used software sources you will need to add the public signing key as well - this allows the software manager to check that the packages are signed (i.e. they are genuine). You can find this on the PPA page.

However, the easiest way to add a PPA is from a terminal, it does all the necessary steps for you. Just remove the one you added from software sources and then do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

This will add the software source and the signing key in one step. Your update manager will then stop complaining.
