Wisteria normally do not make good container plants because they grow too big and too fast. That being said, if you use a large enough pot or tub, it may make it, though it won't stay small and will still require pruning. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/pruning-wisteria.htm

In terms of cold, if you live in zone 5 or higher, it should be fine in a container with no extra care; but if you live in zone 4 or lower, it will need extra protection. If you are in zone 4, wrapping it in burlap and hay or leaves or moving it near a south facing wall should protect it enough for the winter. In zones 3 or less, you would need to move it to a protected area, like an attached garage.
