"If you want a fella, pour Majella"  Add/Read Comments

I'm not entirely sure of the background - take one Qantas flight to India, one attractive stewardess, Lisa Robertson, and one famous actor going by the name of Ralf Fiennes and add a bottle of wine. The stewardess was subsequently sacked.

With the Coonawarra wine now in the limelight the producer is having a ball. They are asking visitors, website viewers and mailing list members for slogans to reflect Majella's role in the liaison.

Sydney Morning Herald

Among the responses, which are in line to earn a bottle of the company's top-of-the-range 2003 Malleea, are: "Majella services Qantas first-class passengers - as do the stewardesses"; "Majella - miles above the rest"; "Oh, ohh, ohhh, oooohhhhh, OOOOHHHhhhhhhhhh . . . Majella"; "You don't have to join the mile high club to get a piece of the action, it's available in all good liquor outlets now"; "When the urge strikes you, there's always Majella"; "Go a mile high with Majella - a natural coupling"; "Majella: uncork the passion";

and, finally: "Majella will take you all the way in first class!"

Fellow Coonawarra winemaker Doug Balnaves chipped in with: "If you want a fella, pour Majella."
