All Winehq packages are not code-signed/notarized so macOS will complain but that’s normal, however currently macOS package are depreciated as the buildbot owners taken it offline.

However as your running 11.5.1 your well past 10.14 that’s the last version of macOS that still supported native 32Bit meaning you an only use wine64 this only runs 64Bit Windows binaries.

Alternative you could purchase CrossOver that includes a custom version of wine that added support for running 32Bit Windows binaries on 64Bit versions of macOS. Upstream wine won’t be receiving this support for sometime as CrossOver used a custom compiler to accomplish this and upstream wine won’t accept that.
