The Assembly of European Wine-producing Regions or Assemblée des Régions Européennes Viticoles (AREV) is an organisation of political and trade representatives of wine regions within the European Union (EU) and Eastern Europe. It lobbies the EU on matters affecting its members, and acts as a forum for discussion of policy and marketing.

History

The European Wine Regions Conference (CERV) was created on 20 June 1988 under Alsatian law.
