Nicolle Laviolette
ConVino Board

I’m Nicolle Laviolette and I am the owner and creator of ConVino Board. I am a deaf and hard-of-hearing teacher by day and a cheese enthusiast by night.

My passion for charcuterie boards started years ago after traveling to 28 different countries and exploring European vineyards. I picked up a love for entertaining and expressing my creativity by preparing cheese & deli meats aesthetically on a board with a glass of wine in hand.

Geena Bouché

I love introducing people to hard-to-find wines and producers. There is so much to explore in the wine world, and it's imperative to have a guide to help you discover the most unique treasures.

My goal when starting WINECULT, was to make wine education and acquisition accessible for everyone. I would be honored to lead you through your wine journey and help you become a more confident, and adventurous wine drinker!
