Who is Marte Belisle:
As President of SommEvents, Marte is following her passion for travel and wine, spending the last 3 decades studying wines around the world. Along the way she has also gone back to school to be formally trained.
SommEvents is not Marte’s first business but certainly the one she is most passionate about. Coordinating events, selecting wines and food pairing, creating new ways of presenting wine and sharing her knowledge with clients never feels like work for her. Niagara is the region she has come to know in depth over the last 20 years and although she makes her base there, no wine region is foreign to her.Using all of her knowledge, Marte helps companies with client retention strategies using wine.
Marte is a member of WBE Canada’s Supplier Advisory Committee, using her experience as a Certified WBE since 2016 to lend her voice as a representative of the WBE Community, advising the President and Board of Directors on strategic initiatives such as events and programs.
