I found below in a post that you should only use 7 vineyards still. No luck yet on question #2.
What a great game! We have been playing the 2016 version, 2 player with none of the stretch goals yet...but now it is time to throw those into the mix.
Just a few quick questions that have quickly come up.
1) Usually we start off by eliminating 2 vineyards per the rulebook. Which is to say we only have 7 of the 9 vineyards available for purchase/use per game. After adding the stretch goal vineyards to the game will we still have 7 vineyards for sale/use...or will we now have 9?
2) The Acores vineyard speaks of exporting the gained barrel. Does that mean you can only export them to the "export" grid, not the "sale to hotels etc." grid?
