I'm pretty sure its a native port this time around, not a WINE wrapper. Not guaranteed to be great (just look at the launch of Serious Sam 3...kernel panicked for 50% of the people who got it.) but its a hopeful improvement.

The Witcher 2 is very demanding tech-wise, so I don't see how it could not be a native port. But as Wumpus says, that's not a gurantee it'll be any good. I've already played it, though, so I'm hoping they announce a simultaneous Mac/PC release of Cyberpunk.
