Aurore is a hybrid wine grape variety produced by Albert Seibel circa 1860. Over a long lifetime Seibel produced many complex hybrid crosses of vitis vinifera to American grapes. It is also known as Seibel 5279. It is a cross of Seibel 788 and Seibel 29.

It may be used as a table or wine grape. It tends not to be used as a table grape due to unsuitability for shipping.
