I assume if you have 2 wine experts of each color face up in front of you and and are able to place your barrel on the multiplier that gives you points for different wine experts, you would get 16 points. Is this correct?

From the last page of the rules:
Quote:
The Player immediately receives 8 VP if he currently has, face-up in front of him, Wine Experts specialized in each of the 4 wine features.

So, nope. Eight points only, I'm afraid. It does not say "each set" earns 8 points.

Actually this cannot happen. Becausa your expert´s hand limit is 6 ( and, off course, two sets are 8 experts).

Just a comment about this multiplier. This is, by far, the worst multiplier of the three. Because it is an all or nothing situation. And to have four experts of different colors seems alot of effort for not too many points. Plus, it is not very effective since we may use only two colors on the fair.

My group have suggested a variant for this multiplier (to make it similar to the other two): 2 points for each active expert, no matter what color it is (could give the same 8 points if one has four experts, and could give twelve at most, if one has six experts).

I have to disagree with Luish. I saw this multiplier in action and managed to use it too. We had a few games where everybody had several experts, so the chance was given. 8 points is still strong.
However We never ever had the renown cobe multiplier used, but as playing more and more games of Vinhos I start to see that even these sources of VPs are getting to be inevitable to win.
