Labour MP Louisa Wall is backing a campaign to convince people to buy and drink Australian wine in a direct dig at Chinese president Xi Jinping.

She joins a cast of MPs from other countries, who form part of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China.

It comes after China introduced tariffs of 212 percent on Australian wine, in an ongoing trade war between the two countries. 

Wall told Heather du Plessis-Allan some of the tariffs they're trying to impose isn't fair.

"As a collective of over 200 MPs globally, what we're trying to do is support one another. So I've kind of categorised it as mates supporting mates."
