The following two paragraphs that were in the history section seem to have been cribbed (with inadequate, trivial edits) from http://www.chiff.com/a/wine-baja.htm (which is an external link for this page). I have removed them for now.
One of the most important activities in the mission was wine production but in 1857, when the Mexican government stripped the Catholic Church of its land holdings the small wineries formerly tended to by missionaries were eventually abandoned. In 1888 the government sold the former lands of the nearby Santo Tomás Mission to a private group, which established the first large-scale winery in Mexico.
In 1904, the region received an influx of Russian Molokan immigrants, a religious group which opposed war and fled Russia so its men would not be drafted by the Czarist army. In Mexico they found freedom of creed and acquired about 0.4 km² (100 acres) of land to harvest grapes for wine.
This article centers on the town, but the term "Valle de Guadalupe" is meant to refer to the Wine producing valley, not the town. Thus a correction is in order.
And Guadalupe is a name that always should be written with a capital G, not guadalupe, that is not proper. amclaussen, a wikipedian in Mexico. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 14:57, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
Also needs to be classified to include another category, like "Wine producing places of Mexico" due to the importance of its wine, which has won a number of international awards. The geographic and climatic characteristics of the valley are quite favorable to the production of good quality wines. Valle de Guadalupe importance is in considered in Mexico comparable to the importance and relevance of Napa Valley in USA, in reference to the wine it produces. amclaussen. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 15:07, 8 July 2011 (UTC)
