Family tree description:
"The head of the family and mother of the Gut Oggau vineyard. A resolute and strong elderly lady, who continues to guide the fortunes of the Burgenland clan and defies all of life's trials and tribulations like a gnarled oak in a storm. Mechtild always has a ready ear, but constantly adheres to her principles. She is the "kind-hearted grandmother" of nostalgia that one trusts, but she can also be secretive and polarize opinion."
