Potato patties are the most popular dish in Val di Non!This dish is perfect for sharing! A generous portion of potato patties in the centre of the table and everyone can team it with what they prefer: local cheese, lucanica sausage, speck, mortandela, salted meat carpaccio and the staple shredded cabbage salad and borlotti beans (better still if served with onions)!
Groppello is the heroic grape variety from Val di Non, the perfect red wine to accompany potato patties!These days, there are only four wineries which produce Groppello and they are all situated in Val di Non. These four families of wine producers make the most of Groppello: the acidity matured with age and the rounded blend of spices enhanced in small wooden barrels.
