First try setting the architecture:

dpkg --add-architecture

Then purge and add the ppa again.

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge && sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa && sudo apt-get update

And now try installing the dependency

sudo apt-get install wine1.7

For more information, please visit Configuring Architecture.

Hope it helps.
