It would be nice to see more details. Where all the bottles fake? Many look like brandy, which makes sense being a higher value item.

Where did all the (presumably) cheap bottle wine come from and what labels were being applied to them?

From the photos it looks like the police used a fake camera to take the pictures at the fake wine shop.

Customs dodge. Those are customs tags.

Wine may be real, but illegally imported.

Agree
No custom sticker on the bottle = illegal bottle.

First report says that bottles of well-known brands of wine and spirits were filled with cheaper alcohol, mentioning bottles with fake labels, however, this might also refer to fake customs seals on the bottles.
Among the brands counterfeited were Corona and Budweiser beer, Penfolds wine from Australia, and various brands of spirits.

From the Phnom Penh Post:
Authorities seize counterfeit wines
Publication date 28 November 2019 | 23:23 ICT
The authorities have cracked down on a business allegedly producing counterfeit red wine in Banteay Meanchey province, arresting three people, while in a separate case, the Phnom Penh Municipal Court was questioning a suspect who was allegedly involved in the illegal production of cosmetic products.

The Ministry of Interior’s Anti-Counterfeit Products officers raided a business location called Tola Selling All Kinds of Wines in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town on Wednesday, where they said red wine was being produced and packaged illegally.

Long Sreng, the deputy director of the Anti-Economic Crime Department at the Ministry of Interior, told The Post on Thursday that during the raid, police confiscated 248 cases – or 1,488 bottles – of red wine with the brand name Penlods, and 132 cases of red wine with 88 labels.

They also confiscated other cases and boxes which they said violated international copyright laws.

“We detained three people and will send them to court to face the law when we have finished our procedures,” he said.
