Aurore

(aka. Aurora, Siebel 5279)

A 19th century French hybrid, Aurore was created by Albert Seibel and named after the Roman goddess of dawn. At one time, Aurore was the most widely planted non-labrusca grape in New York State. In recent years, its acreage has been in constant decline, as producers have replaced it with other French/American hybrids and Vitis vinifera varieties. Aurore is used for a range of white wine styles including dry, off-dry and sparkling. This grape's early ripening tendency will be its saving grace, as it attempts to hold on to acreage in some climatically challenged states.


You landed on the Ellis Island pier,
a French immigrant with working class
parents. But you weren't going to get
lost in the crowd like the others. Your
personality shone like a ray of light,
and you have been willing to do just
about any act to keep yourself noticed
on the "off-Broadway" viticultural scene. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)
