The Ghiandaio

The Ghiandaio: A local shop in Pieve Santo Stefano, manufactures and sells locally sourced (kilometre zero) products preserving traditions in Tuscany

In Tuscany, gastronomy is memory, tradition, culture and storytelling. Come to Pieve Santo Stefano to find out what we are talking about.

Visit the Ghiandaio and ask the owner, Giovanni Ferroni, about the most delicious products of this off the beaten track part of Valtiberina.

While you enjoy a good glass of red wine, you can taste the most delicious cured meats and sausages in the region, such as finocchiona, a special Tuscan ham. Also remember the locally sourced cheeses (kilometre zero) that will enrich your vegetarian recipes.

You will also discover specialties in Pieve Santo Stefano so rare that you can’t find them anywhere else in the world. For example, Anguilla dell’Ancione and Ventresca del Tevere. What are these? Just ask the extraordinary storyteller Giuseppe, Giovanni’s son, and delight your palate while listening to stories rooted in the centuries-old tradition of the upper Tiber. This is a unique and exciting experience that you can have on the Memory Route.
