If you're referring to the packages available from winehq.org, the wine-stable or -devel or -staging packages install under /opt and any or all of them can be installed at the same time. The winehq- package installs symlinks under /usr/bin to make whichever version the "default", so it will run if you just type "wine" in a terminal (otherwise you have to specify the path, like /opt/wine-devel/bin/wine).
