Name (also bud) for the youthful state of a new sprout or Triebes, At the Rebstock the eye is in the leaf axils to the Nodien (Nodules) from one-year-old shoots (hence axillary bud or axillary bud). The winter eye consists of lignified bracts, which are layered in several layers and cover the primary, already pre-differentiated plants of the new shoot. Already recognizable in miniature form are the drive segments of the stem axis with the laterally angled plants for leaves (Leaves), tendrils (Fasteners) and inflorescences (Gescheine). The cavities in the bud are filled with fine woolen hair, so that the instinctual system during the Hibernation until the expulsion in the spring from injuries, frost and wetness is protected. In the place of the Nodien is the diaphragm (Wood bridge).
