Yes, in colder regions the top growth will die back in the winter on young wisteria, and in the spring, the roots will send up new shoots. As the wisteria ages and the stalks thicken, there is less winter damange.
The roots can be aggressive. Here's a helpful article about the roots: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/wisteria-root-system.htm
