Hi, I’m Nicolle Laviolette and I am the owner and creator of ConVino Board. My passion for charcuterie started years ago when I picked up a love for entertaining and expressing my creativity through preparing cheese & deli meats aesthetically for friends and family.
One night, a few glasses deep in vino, I started looking at charcuterie boards more critically and what that experience was missing. My goal was to make the art of charcuterie more convenient for others. First, I wanted to create the perfect board for people to socialize around.
ConVino Board was created with the following key unique features….
- A hole to fit a wine bottle (because who doesn’t love charcuterie with vino)
- Side divot to make it easier to lift and a handle to make the board functional and double as a home décor piece.
- The board had to be HIGH quality - so it is handmade with 100% black walnut wood.
Next, I thought about the most time consuming part- which was what went on charcuterie boards. Like many hostesses, I aim to please- I understand it can take hours researching what pairs well together in order to make the perfect board. I realized how difficult this must be for people and created ConVino spread cards which include a grocery list, wine pairing and placement picture to make creating the display of people’s board easier!
One size doesn’t fit all, or in this case taste buds, so I wanted to offer customers not one BUT FOUR different spread cards that comes with the purchase of their ConVino Board.
These boards bring people together, serve well as gifts and are a focal point for many laughs, memories and deep conversations.
ConVino Virtual Charcuterie Classes!!! This is perfect for those who would like to enhance their charcuterie skills, learn my tips & tricks and what placement style to use when arranging your board.

We also offer private virtual classes. A safe way to connect with family and friends. Please contact for more information.
A night in on Zoom learning a new skill, drinking some vino, meeting new people & sharing a few laughs - sounds like a gouda idea me!
This is ConVino Board. This is making the art of charcuterie ConVenient.
