I have struggled to find an answer to this, so I wanted to share what I came up with. In my 32-bit wine prefix on Fedora 29, I have been unable to enable audio. I installed the wine-pulseaudio and wine-alsa packages, yet in winecfg no audio driver appears. Additionally, in winetricks the settings menu shows no sound settings at all! Why is this, and how do I enable audio?


It turns out that a 32-bit wine prefix will require the 32-bit version of the drivers. By default, on a 64-bit system, dnf install wine-pulseaudio will install the wine-pulseaudio.x86_64 package. To enable audio in wine I succeeded only after running dnf install wine-pulseaudio.i686. After that, everything went smoothly. Obvious in hindsight, but I thought I'd share in case anybody else runs into the same issue.
