Nestled at the base of the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Calaveras County is the 4/J + 1 Ranch, home to Copperopolis Olive Oil Company. Here, warm summers and mild winters make the best possible weather conditions to grow their Tuscan olive trees. This is also where they bottle their Copper Cobalt Tuscan blend of 100% extra virgin olive oil made with 100% California grown and handpicked organic fruit that is milled within hours, then allowed to rest and mellow before being bottled and introduced.
This exclusive blend is made of four noble Tuscans::
- Leccino – a robust cultivar that produces a mild, fruity, and delicate oil
- Pendolino – Produces a sweet soft oil.
- Maurino – A delicate and fruity oil.
- Frantoio – A prominent Tuscan variety which produces a strong noticeably aromatic oil
