My notebook has a few glitches in it now since that event. When I boot I have to tap on some keys and then hit ESC cause it makes a high beeping sound if I don't! I've also done something to one of the lower keys so it's not flat like the others.
The wine components remain at the inside of the keyb so they shortcircuit the key operation and produce the error beeps. In most caseslaptop keybs are not to be dissasembled so best solution is to change it.

Maybe your keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced? Did you spill a liquid on it?
Maybe the keyboard has been hijacked by a virus or infection.

water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly
inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards
& on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in
the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be
done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer
liquid. Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed. When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook. If
the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard
is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.
Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.
There was more damage than just the keyboard, your fault appears intermitten and possibly some connectors and sockets are not making good electrical contact. You need to dismantle the laptop completely to inspect and clean what ever you can with distilled water and let it dry throughly. It still may not work because there may be some electrical damage to some chips and components, especially if the laptop was running at the time of the wine spill.
There is not much help I can offer you except to advise you to buy another laptop, and if the hard drive in the old laptop is OK then buy a USB hard drive case and insert the laptop hard drive in this case and use it as an external USB hard drive. You need to delete all the old system files etc. to maxmise the hard disk space.
