In June 2021, Australia commenced dispute settlement proceedings in the World Trade Organization (WTO) after China imposed anti-dumping duties of between 116.2 per cent and 218.4 per cent on bottled Australian wine imports (in containers of 2 litres or less) for five years, from 26 March 2021.

The following resource has been developed to assist Australian wine businesses and organisations seeking more information about the events leading to the dispute and the steps taken since then.

This information will be updated as the dispute progresses.

Please note: Wine Australia and Australian Grape & Wine, the peak representative organisation for the Australian wine sector, are working in close collaboration with the Australian Government to monitor and support the sector’s interests during this time.

The Australian wine sector has made a long-term commitment to building the market for Australian wine in China and building close ties with the China wine trade and consumers. Wine Australia will continue to support the efforts of the Australian grape and wine community.
