I'll guess that you like Riesling and Gewurztraminer, because they often use long tapered bottles called Hock bottles.
If you go to a good wine store and study the bottles, you will get totally confused.
BTW, when I ran a store, one customer thought that bottles with a punt (dimple at the bottom) were red wine bottles, and flat bottomed bottles were for white (or maybe vice versa).
