It lead to a fascinating experiment that led to the discovery of radioactive isotopes generated by the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in California wines.
Any wines containing cesium-137 would have to have been vinified after the mid-20th century, when Cold War nuclear testing began.
The presence of cesium-137, therefore, can be used as an identifying marker to authenticate when a wine was produced.

In their experiment, researchers tested 18 bottles of California Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache rosé from each vintage between 20.
Comparisons were made between the Cs inventories in these lakes and large inpoundments in the Adirondacks (Hinkley, Great Sacandaga, Stillwater and Cranberry Lake Reservoirs) and other large impoundments and lakes located in various regions of the U. None of the Adirondack Lakes had Cs distributions with depth in sediment that closely resembled the deposition pattern of weapons testing as a function of time.
