Along the Street: In Dayton, Glühwein and a winter market

Seufert Winery will host a traditional-style Christmas market event Friday through Sunday, Dec. 10-12.

The “Winter Makers Market” will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Seufert tasting room, 303 Main St., Dayton, across the street from the city park. Admission is free.

The market will offer food gifts, jewelry, art, home decor and wine — including winery founder Jim Seufert’s recipe for glühwein, the warm, mulled wine traditionally served at Christmas markets.

“It’s spiced with cloves and citrus. It’s very good,” said Sarah Weikert of the tasting room.

Along with other makers, Weikert will have some of her craftwork on display at the market; she and a friend make decorative macrame pieces. Michelle Wasner of the winery also will show her jewelry, and Seufert will have woodworking pieces on display.

The Seufert tasting room is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Visitors can walk in or make an appointment for tasting at 503-864-2946. The $10 tasting fee is waived with the purchase of a bottle or case.

Seufert’s winery itself also is located in Dayton in a building on Ferry Street. For more information, go to the website,
